Baby’s Tears Plant ‘Aussie’ – Helxine soleirolia. Golden & Green mixed coloured foliage. Supplied in 125mm pot.
Best known as an indoor plant, baby’s tears
makes an attractive and maintenance-free alternative to grass as ground
cover in moist, shady areas. It will tolerate sun or shade. Frost hardy and will grow
vigorously in spring.
The masses of tiny leaves clothe slender spreading stems that root as
they run, forming a dense deep-pile carpet. As it covers the ground it
will run over rocks, fallen logs, and so on, clinging to their shape so
the features of the landscape are picked out. Quick to establish, it
survives periodic dry spells and recovers quickly afterwards. It is a
superb substitute for moss in a Japanese garden or shady courtyard.
Propagate by easy division from spring to mid-summer.
