GLECHOMA, Emerald Frost

Glechoma, a perennial (-10°F /-23°C) ground cover, is grown for its distinctive and fragrant foliage. The interesting small, round, scalloped and variegated green and white foliage trails down over the edge of planters, window boxes and hanging baskets beautifully. Glechoma is best grown in containers because of its natural tendency to spread and grow vigorously. Because it can take some foot traffic, it can be used as groundcover or trailing plant in rock gardens. Deer resistant.
