From the superior breeding genetics of Sinclair A. Adam, Jr. we bring you another fine addition to The River Series of truly East Coast native foam flowers. Octoraro is possibly the best ground cover of the series. Octoraro grows four to six inches tall and covers up to 24 inches of ground making it the perfect, native substitute for English ivy and periwinkle in dry or moderately wet shade. Thick flower stalks hold mauve-pink buds that open to creamy, light pink blooms from early May to July. The medium maroon markings become more pronounced as the foliage matures each season and the creamy light pink blooms emerge in late spring and continue well into summer. Octoraro’s foliage remains semi-evergreen until March, when it is overgrown by new foliage.
