Our one gallon crop of S. ramosa.
Height: 1.5 to 3 feet
Hardiness: 0° F
USDA zone 7
hardy groundcover is fairly sun tolerant and makes a nice hedge or mound
of dark green foliage. It is a vigorous grower and seems to
thrive just about anywhere. In climates colder than 10F it will
show some leaf die-back in the winter, but it comes back strong every
spring. It will look the most uniform when trimmed back to ground level
each March, just before shooting season.
