This is definitely a must have. I forced this plant in the greenhouse causing the stolons to elongate. Normally it is very compact with the babies right up against the mother plant. It is pure silver/white during summer and late fall to early winter. It holds most of its webbing throughout the year. Average size 1/2 to 1-1/4 inches in diameter1/2 to 3/4 inch high. Stunning in mass planting.
