Leptinella 'Platt's Black' Description
Looking for a ground cover that’s anything but ho-hum? That describes ‘Platt’s Black’ to a T! Also known as brass buttons (due to its little rounded blooms) and creeping cotula, this unique mat-forming plant contributes texture and color that’s unlike anything else you’ll find. Imagine walking on a carpet of this soft, fern-like foliage with bare feet – it’s incredibly inviting and touchable. This particular selection sports an appealing purple-black hue that is perfect for mixing in with other ground covers or growing on its own. Highly effective around stepping stones and pathways and very nice in rock gardens and containers.
Special features: colorful foliage, ground cover, wet soil.
