Print Plant

  

An evergreen carpeting plant, this ground-hugger is studded by tiny white flowers during late spring. Ideal for growing between flagstones or massing as a groundcover over a small area. Dislikes extreme drought, but otherwise tough and versatile. A good cover for early spring-blooming bulbs. Easily divided by ripping apart into small pieces in spring or early fall. Tolerates moderate foot traffic.
