Description

Soleirolia soleirolii 'Alba' is a silvery-green leaf form of the well-known creeping perennial, Mind-your-own-Business. Its pale foliage makes an interesting contrast to the usual green-leaf form. Fast-growing, it quickly creates a soft delicate carpet that is perfect for creating ambience and the appearance of a well-established garden. It can be grown up trees and tree-stumps or masonry, creating a sense of atmosphere and hiding less-aesthetic features.

Recommended.
