I was listening to the Dirt Doctor this am and he suggested horseherb as a groundcover under trees. I read one place it's easy to grow from seed and another said you need to grow it from cuttings.

Does anyone know where you can get the plants near Arlington, TX or where on the net to order either seeds or plants?

Thanks

Someone may know a location near you. I bought an entire flat of horseherb, split it & planted it in various locations & it all died. That was last spring. I'm not sure if I want to try it this fall. I guess if I'd gotten it in b/4 yesterday it may have had a chance!

PS-I bought mine at 'Shades of Green' in Frisco.

Try Green Mama's in North Richland Hills. I think they're on Davis Blvd. They carry a lot of natives and organic products, and should be able to help you locate the Horseherb. Great plant...

If you are still having trouble finding HH it may just be because it is not usually propagated this late. At least, that has been my experience with the growers. It should be readily available again next spring. As for the gardener who lost the flat of it, you may have divided it up too soon. Rather than split the pots, which is what I am thinking you meant you did, just space them further apart. It will spread pretty fast - and without too much watering once it is settled in a little bit. I have a patch of it here in a demo garden and it has taken a hit with the freezes we have had, but I still see a little green down near the soil. While it may not grow till it warms up, if I take the time to trim it, it will look just fine.

Happy Gardening!

I got 2 small (2") pots at Green Mama's . . . and now I'm taking pieces of it and planting it in other shadier places in my yard and even composting some of it because it's growing so well. It's very pretty when the little flowers are growing. Mine grew slow at first, but after a few months, it's acting rather agressive.
