This is planted on a steep hillside that gets only morning sun. I have a few different ground covers beneath large shrubs, and this works really well. It blooms repeatedly, which I didn't expect. If it starts to get too thick or wander where I don't want it, it's easy to just cut or pull it back.

So far I have tired this plant three times. The first two times I planted them in part sun, and they died in the middle of the summer. I figured that maybe it was too much sun for them. I bought one this year and put it is full shade and it looked great for a few months but once the hot 90F plus weather came they died again. I was careful to make sure it was moist not not too wet. Maybe it will come back when the weather cools off so I gave it a neutral.

Have three small plants establishing in a mostly shaded north exposure (2 hours or so of morning sun). Lamium is a reliable groundcover for hard places like this, and the function here is to provide semi-evergreen carpet for a couple of monster hostas.

The color of the Orchid Frost blooms is what I treasure. Not purple, not pink, but true ORCHID. In morning sun, the color is warmed to a lavender pink. Late afternoon, in true shade, it blues toward purple. Both are lovely. But the color in the indirect light it gets most of the day here is an absolutely glorious balanced orchid, with bloom clusters large enough to be seen from the road. I can hardly wait to see it when it's filled in!

I love this little plant! I first discovered it last year and have propagated it all over our yard. Our soil is clay, ph of 7.4 to 7.6 and shady where this plant is growing. It successfully crowds out weeds and forms a dense mat. It is evergreen. Contrary to what it says above, there is...

Yeah, too many examples and pissy things go on that were bad enough at the time, so am not in the mood to rehash this Monday morning!
Yeah plants are always better the second time around. I'm surprised you didn't get more from the chamomile. It's an annual that self seeds like crazy. I only brought one with me to the new place from the apartment, because I know this time next year, there'll be a colony of cham seedlings around this one parent. I kept some of mostly everything in pots so they were easy to move. But some things I had to unearth and repot, and a few really didn't like it, like motherwort, because they were in full bloom when I did it

DALY: Use care when planting around septic drainfields  —
Shallow rooted annual and perennial herbaceous plants can be planted closer to the drain fields since they do not have invasive roots. Turfgrass can be grown over the drain field and is beneficial since it helps hold the soil in place.
