Brass Buttons

Brass Buttons
Leptinella squalida 
(lep-tin-EL-luh) (SKWA-lee-duh)

An interesting short groundcover for moist sun and part shade. The flowers and fruits do not add up to much and this plant is primarily grown for it’s dark foliage. It is the perfect groundcover for a ‘black’ themed garden. It grows well in cracks of walks and can be used as a turf substitute, as it can take light foot traffic.
