Herniaria  Green Carpet

green carpet

Almost as rugged as grass, this groundcover can take substantial foot traffic.  It also has a deep growing tap root, so is very drought tolerant.  One plant can spread up to 24".  It has been used as a lawn substitute in some areas.  Many people never notice it flowering because the white blossoms are so tiny and have no petals. But the foliage remains attractive, turning a bronzy red in winter. It's great in heavy foot traffic areas because without flowers, it doesn't attract bees.

Excellent in rock gardens and between flagstones in pathways.  Also attractive spilling over walls, out of hanging baskets, and containers.  A great substitute for Creeping Thyme.

Another name for this plant is Rupturewort.  Said by herbalists to be used for urinary problems, since it increases urea and sodium emission without increasing urine flow.
