Argentina anserina - Silverweed

  • This shimering groundcover is great for areas that retain some moisture and don't dry out completely. It can be used in gardens as "green mulch" to fill in spaces around taller perrenial plants, or as part of a no-mow lawn. It spreads by stolons to form small colonies of plants and the leaves usually fan out on the ground, although they can stand up. The small yellow flowers make a cheery statement starting in June.
