Ordered 60 Pearlwort plugs in mid-July as a low maintenance alternative to grass. Packaging and protection was excellent and plugs were in superb condition. I split each plug into 4 and planted directly into the soil which had been well prepared beforehand. The somewhat warmer summer meant more frequent watering to ensure the plugs settled into place. By next summer I anticipate the soil between the stepping stones in the garden to be completely filled with pearlwort. It is planted in direct sun and deeply shaded areas but all are growing and spreading well. Most of the plugs flowered and the spread has been quite amazing. Because of the layout, a lawnmower or strimmer would not fit so an alternative had to be found. Victoriana Nursery provided the perfect solution - a low maintenance grass alternative which also produces small white flowers. Everyone who sees it loves the look and the idea of no real maintenance. Victoriana Nursery has a range of unusual plants so I will definitely be after future purchases and spreading the word to those who are curious or are 'green fingered'. Great value for money. Keep the area weed free as the plants spread and weeds will be a thing of the past.

This really is a ground cover for all seasons - and all aspects!

Happy to grow anywhere from deep shade, the rich green foliage grows really tight and thick to the ground. The new spring growth is pale green; as the season continues it deepens to a dark green - but always the leaves have an almost polished appearance.

But the real beauty of this plant is its flower - and flowering period. Virtually any time of year (spring, summer, autumn and even in mild winters) pretty star-like flowers appear nestled between the foliage.

Utterly hardy and tough, once established this plant needs very little attention at all. Completely reliable!

  • Plant 12" x 12" (30 x 30 cm) apart - that's 9 plants per square metre to metric people.
  • Grow to approximately 8" (20 cm) tall.
  • Suitable for all aspects, and will grow in deep shade - even beneath the shade canopy of trees.
  • Happy in most soil types except those that are very dry.
  • Ensure weed growth is kept under control until the lawn is well established.
  • Evergreen.
