Its origins are in Japan where it’s a common evergreen ground cover. Kurapia performs extremely well in drought-stricken areas of the United States as well as in areas where it gets ample amounts of water and does not suffer from over-irrigation, making it a surprisingly good choice for a lawn alternative.  Kurapia ground cover makes an excellent lawn replacement that has a high level of disease resistance and tolerates many soil types and growing conditions.  Kurapia is quickly becoming the leading turf and groundcover alternative with minimal maintenance required.
