Q.

condition of mazus in the spring

Zone Gaithersburg Maryland 20878 | gene.deltatto@gmail.com added on April 20, 2018 | Answered

I planted Mazus last year and it spread and bloomed as advertised. However, after a relatively cold winter (Maryland area close to DC) the majority of the plants have turned brown and only the outer portions of the plant have new blooms. Is this normal and given the warmer weather in late April and early May the brown portion of the plant will return to its original green growth and blooms will hopefully reappear. If this is not the case then is this a sign that the plant has died and I should purchase new plants? Thanks, Gene

It will, usually, recover. There is no action needed except for occasional fertilization. This article will give you more information on the care of these: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/groundcover/mazus/growing-mazus-reptans.htm
