This is a ground cover shrub that seems to do very well in heat and direct sun. any idea what it is?
what ground cover is this?
That is the inimitable Rhus aromatica 'Gro-Lo'.
It is quite often used along sidewalks and in parking lot traffic islands. Grows like a flat (to 2' or so) mat, rather than as a rounder taller shrub like the species Fragrant Sumac.
Now I just have to find some seeds for this plant. Any idea where I could get some?
I don't know that it would come true from seed since it's a named cultivar--you'd probably be better off buying a plant unless you want to take a chance on the growth habit not being the same. (The species Rhus aromatica can get quite a bit taller so you may not get the groundcover effect you want if you try to start one from seed)
Here are mail order nurseries that offer plants: http://davesgarden.com/products/ps/go/98024/
Yes I can get cuttings but I don't know how to grow from cuttings?
