Not so Boring Borage

One of our favorite borage family members, Trachystemon orientalis is flowering this week in the woodland garden. Native to Bulgaria and Turkey, this late winter-flowering groundcover is quite tough. The foliage dies away in fall, but not long before the emergence of flowers and a new round of foliage. Hardiness Zone 6a-8b.

  1. The mass planting on a steep bank of Trachystemon at Plant Delights is truly amazing. This has not been my experience in my own woodland garden. It has not spread very much in over 5 years. I am curious to know what this plant requires to spread as beautifully as it does at Plant Delights? More information, generally, on plant needs would be greatly appreciated.
