how far apart should they be planted? How tall do they grow?

Asked by: GREENTHUMB85
The plants should be set about 15-18 inches apart and they grow to a height of about 8''. An important note about this plant is that it will spread.

What are good companion plants?

Trying to make an easier to care for garden by planting more perennials. I just started gardening about 2-3 years ago, so I am learning by trial and error. Sadly, I started gardening after my grandmothers passed away. I lost out on gaining knowledge from them. Both were great gardeners. Presently, I live in my grandmother's house. When she owned it, the rock garden was beautiful. Now, it looks more of a weed garden. I decided to start gardening in an other area that has soil with a few big rocks. The other "weed garden", is one big rock. Hopefully, it will become a garden in the future. For now I am working in the other area, where there is more soil. I have problematic areas, where there is not enough soil to plant. All/Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I like flowers that blooom throughout the summer. I also like blue, yellow,
Asked by: MichelleMC
Hi MichelleMC. The picture you sent looks GREAT! Congraulations. What you plant may largely depend on your area. Each planting zone will have its perennials and annuals. Before you start too much planting, I would highly recommend that you add a layer of Weed Mat. The Weed Mat will help to prevent weed seeds from getting a stronghold in your garden and help you devote more time to planting and caring for your flowers and less time just digging up weeds. http://www.homedepot.com/s/weed%2520mat?NCNI-5 Along with the Weed Mat, the staples should also be used to hold the weed mat down. Some flowering perennials in zones 8,9 and 10 would be Geraniums, Yarrow, Phlox, Daylily, Salvias, Russian sage, Coneflower, Ice Plant, Coreopsis, Catmint Plants (Not the same as Catnip), Speedwell, Balloon Flower, Black-Eyed Susan, Rudbeckia as well as Hydrangea, Zinnias or Dahlias to name just a few. http://www.homedepot.com/s/Perennial%2520flowers?NCNI-5 You have many good choices. For your areas that are lacking soil, you can add more soil to give you a 6-inch base or more so that your flowers will be able to have something to root into. What soils that will be available to your will depend on your area. Check with your local Home Depot Garden Department for some good recommendations. Smart Planet Plants are good choices for you as well. With a little care they can become “Drought Tolerant” in about six months or less. http://www.smartplanetplants.com/ Please share some pictures of your project with us at: http://community.homedepot.com/topic/Project-Ideas-Customers-Show-Off Be sure to let us know if we can be of further assistance.

How to prune a 10 year-old plumbago that is spiny without hurting it?

Asked by: nette
Hello, the Dwarf Plumbago that is listed for sale here is a creeping perennial plant with no spines and can be pruned as needed. We are not sure if you are inquiring about the evergreen shrub also called Plumbago (it's botanical name is Plumbago auriculata). That particular plant can be pruned heavily to control growth and shape.

I almost returned them. seriously overpriced. and the three plants were almost dead (barely developed and almost smothered from the packaging). I nursed them back to health and after several weeks now they are ok now (I did not have the heart to return them knowing someone would simply toss them in the garbage). shame on Home Depot. disappointing order.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Purchased two in store and got them for a good price. I just purchased two of these plants. I got them for a good price because they were not in good condition. Just planted them at back property line of my garden right before it turns to a wooded area. Hope they do well there. It was a difficult area to plant them due to a lot if roots and very poor soil. I followed the directions; dug the hole twice as wide and deep, and added garden soil . Hope they spread into the woods and cover the ground area.

I actually returned this "plant" because what I received was a container of dirt with a tiny bit of growth in about 1/16th of the surface along the edge. I'm not sure if this happened because I had the plant shipped to me, but I have learned my lesson there too. I will never buy plants by mail from HD again. Definitely not properly packaged for mailing.
