A fantastic plant, deer resistant and covers the ground nicely.

Love this tough plant. I did have rabbits chew on it a couple of years ago, but I actually cut it back nearly to the ground each year in order to contain it anyway. Fall color is great!

I live in Michigan and have a half dozen of these plants which are used as ground cover. I heartily endorse the recommendations above with this one caveat: if not cut back to control spread, picking out the leaves from nearby deciduous tress is a...chore.
