Brass Buttons

19 Mar

Brass Buttons (Leptinella squalida), evergreen, striking bronzy-black foliage that is perfect for the edge of pathways or between stepping stones, full sun to part shade, likes moisture.

A native of New Zealand, Brass Buttons are low, carpeting perennials that are perfect for planting along the edge of pathways, or using in between flagstones. This unique selection features feathery foliage of an unusual bronzy-black shade, bearing insignificant green flowers during the summer. Because of its spreading tendency, keep this away from slow-growing alpine plants that might get smothered. Easy to grow in any soil that does not completely dry out. Easily divided by digging up the clump and ripping into smaller pieces in spring or early fall. Evergreen.
