promotion for ground cover

If I see another ground cover of daylilies mixed with mulch or grassy junipers, I am going to scream. Unlike daylilies, ground covers should be ornamental year-round, and low maintenance once established. Learn some new options for ground cover, including plants that you may not think of, to create these living carpets. These types of plants will be highlighted throughout the talk with University of Illinois Extension Horticulture Educator, Kelly Allsup.

Next webinar in the series:
