Kinnikinnick Emerald Carpet




Emerald-Green Growth for the Golden State

Why Kinnikinnick Emerald Carpets?
Dense growth and a richly-hued, emerald-green tone merge, making the Kinnikinnich Emerald Carpet, also known as the Emerald Carpet Bearberry, a unique landscape staple. And because this variety is specifically grown for the Golden State, you’ll have easy success in your own California landscape.

Plus, the Emerald Carpet boasts contrasting, eye-catching blooms. Small white florals tinged in pink emerge from the Emerald each year during the spring season, setting the Kinnikinnick apart even more. Even better is the fact that it’s an easy-growing, rapidly-spreading variety, so you’ll have gorgeous groundcover for nearly any space in your landscape – from areas with finicky soil types to sandy coastal locales and erosion-prone sites.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: First, select a location with full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil – full sun translates to about 6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day, but since the Emerald Carpet tolerates partial shade, areas with 4 hours of sunlight daily should suffice. The Emerald Carpet also thrives in nearly any soil type, except for clay.


When you’re ready to plant your Emerald, dig a hole that’s about one and a half to two times your plant’s root ball, place the root ball, back fill the soil and water to settle the roots.

2. Watering: Once established, your Emerald Carpet will only need occasional watering, but it’s important to have a regular watering schedule for the first few growing seasons. Water your Emerald Carpet about once weekly or check the surrounding soil…if the surrounding soil is dry about 2 or 3 inches down, it’s time to water.

3. Fertilizing: The Emerald Carpet grows well without the need for fertilizer, but if you notice slower growth, use a well-balanced blend in early spring and follow the label instructions.
