I'm replacing my lawn with this--it's beautiful and tough, but slow growing. I'm having a heck of a time with grass growing up through it.
Green Carpet Rupturewort Herniaria glabra
- Part Sun to Sun
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
This lovely green creeper is aptly named; its small, flat size and spreading habit create a carpet of green. Green Carpet can withstand light foot traffic.
