Miniature Mat Daisy
Bellium minutum


This forms a flat carpet of small light-green leaves, bearing a long display of tiny white daisies beginning in late spring. Evergreen in mild winter regions. In colder zones this may act as a self-seeding annual. Use for edging or a small-area groundcover. Also excellent for growing in alpine containers or troughs. Needs evenly moist soil. Not a good choice for regions with hot and humid summers. Will tolerate moderate foot traffic once established. An excellent choice for growing between patio or pathway paving stones.
