I love how the groundcover softens the edge of the patio and takes care of an area that would normally collect bits of dirt and debris.
My mother-in-law (a wonderful godly woman) would root her species Hydrangea by digging a shallow hole, laying a Hydragea branch in the hole (late spring/early summer), back-filling the hole with the dirt and placing a brick on top of the hole/branch. In the fall, the branch would have rooted into the soil just in time for a fall harvest to transplant. Miss you Bernice Moore!
