When I was at Lowe's, I passed the trees and was stunned by one 8 foot tree. Filling the pot was a low-growing plant, some sort of ground cover, it appears. None of the people who knew plants could identify it. The bare spaces are where the workers pulled a few plugs for me.
Does anyone know what this is? It is no more than four inches high. Most is two or three inches tall. It does not appear that it will become taller. In response to a question, it has no distinctive scent.
No other tree had this ground cover. The workers all warned me that it might take over, to be careful. Since there are only tiny oak seedling in the front yard and weeds, can this be bad? I doubt it.
UPDATE: Even though I think Wendy identified this in a comment below, if you have any thoughts, please add a comment. Thanks.
Any guesses? Any suggestions?
