I want to fill in a part of my yard with frog fruit. Anyone know how far each plant spreads ( I have 4" pots) or how far apart I should plant them? Thanks.

Lynne, I bet @frostweed could help you with you request. If she isn't available, maybe @horntoad will have the answer!

I really don't think it matters. The closer they are the quicker they will fill-in and the further apart the more space you can cover. If they are happy they should spread fairly fast. They spread by rhizomes and by rooting at the nodes of the stems.
