Description

Soleirolia soleirolii is a low, creeping perennial with tiny round leaves. It is fast-growing and quickly establishes a soft ground-covering carpet that is ideal for creating an established atmosphere in the garden. It lends itself well to tropical-look gardens and can create a variety of effects. It softens the areas around ponds, looks good with flagstones or statuary and is an ideal combination plant for ferns, treeferns or jungle-style plants where the aspect is cool, moist and shady and the desired overall effect is soft, green and atmospheric. It is easy to establish it on tree-trunks or the nooks in branches and used in this way will often create quite magical results. Similarly it is useful on stonewalls or to cover ugly fencing or other areas that may need hiding or softening.

It is cut back by the frosts each year but regrows again in Spring. It is a vigourous grower and can be grown in a container if you don't want it to spread too far.
