We are often asked by customers for plants to grow between paving stones. Herniaria glabra 'Marble Cream' is a new addition to our list which includes creeping thymes and mints. It forms a dense mat of evergreen foliage that develops from a single taproot. In the winter, the leaves become an attractive bronze color. One of our sources mentioned that the plant does not attract bees and so can be walked on barefoot. It can also be walked on without harm to the plant. The hint of cream variegation in the leaves distinguishes this selection.

Early summer to midsummer.  1 in. x 10-12 in.

Green flowers
