Hi,

Just wondering what herbs and flowers would like to be planted around a natural spring... goofy thing is clear and not frozen at all and it's been 0 to 12 degrees out...

Sweet Flag, Amaranthus, Comfrey *but is deep rooted and stays forever, Dill, Ground Ivy, Chameleon plant~Houttuynia cordata 'Chameleon'
*that stuff can be verrrrrrrry invasive*

and Sweet Woodruff loves moist soil,
but also creeps and creeps big..
but it's a good "other kind of weed" keeper out of type plant.. It creeps and covers really well and not much can grow between it..
and has pretty white dainty flowers too..

chameleon.........What a mistake that flower is.
My sister brought it from Ohio.....ANd I still cant get rid of it for about 7 years now. And it stinks .......
Pretty colors, but has a damp musty smell that never leaves.. I keep pulling it .
Invasive isnt the word......Over runs is.

I know, I feel the same way about
Bishop's weed, but in some circumstances,
like bank control *so the banks don't erode
when water flows thru and floods alot*
or people want color in shady places with no mowing..
It does have it's plus side.. :rolleyes:
but for everything else, I despise it in the regular garden...and the plant you mentioned
is it's cousin...
