Scleranthus biflorus  “Australian Astroturf”    little tuffet of soft green moss, this groundcover forms a mound about 3” high & 1’ wide. And this guy keeps his green even when it is dry, sunny & hot. Native to Australia, it has practically invisible little white flowers but this plant is all about the foliage. Looks great clinging to stones in the garden, its form hugs the hard edges nicely.
