Consider replacing some of your high-maintenance turf with groundcovers. You will use less water and spend less time mowing. It’s also great for wildlife. The insects that live there will attract a wide array of ground feeding birds.
Grow in partial to dappled shade or in full sun in northern regions. Chrysogonum prefers moist soils, but will tolerate dryer conditions with protection from the sun
