Baby’s Tears

3 Mar

Baby’s Tears  (Soleirolia soleirolii), 2-3 in., requires moisture, lush green carpet, shade to deep shade.

Native to the western Mediterranean, this ground cover grows 2 to 4 in. high, spreading indefinitely by creeping stems to form a lush, medium green mat. Inconspicuous flowers. Stems and tiny leaves are tender, juicy, easily injured, but aggressive growth repairs damage quickly. This plant is perfect between stepping stones in a shady garden.
