Resembling moss this charming creeper forms a mat of lime green foliage that begs to be touched and patted. Irresistible tiny white flowers bloom in summer. Excellent in the rock garden or used as a filler between stepping stones. Prefers part shade in light but moist soil. We have planted it beneath an apple tree where it is spreading happily.
