Hernaria glabra  GREEN CARPET  miniature ground cover

Zones: 4-10. One of the best small scale meadow or mini lawn plants. Green Carpet features minute fleshy leaves on creeping stems which form a dense green mat. Flowers of tiny white stars bloom in summer. For thick, lush results, give ample water with good drainage. Full to partial sun, but protect from burning sun in hot climates. Considered an evergreen, but will turn red in colder areas, adding much needed color in winter. Perfect as mini scene lawn or meadow. Excellent in troughs or rock garden, can be used as lawn substitute in regular gardens. Photo shows 3 inch tall Libby, if she were standing, and her 2 inch dog Benji.
