One of my repertoire of easy to grow plants. All you have to do to propagate it is wait for one of the offsets (mine - plants) around the mother plant to grow to the size of a dime, cut the connecting underground stem, and dig out the roots. When in sun, the leaves acquire a bronze -ish red color. Great for rock gardens and thrives in poor soil.

The third picture is the correct 'silverine'. This is where it gets its name from. It maintains this silver/gray color year round. Average size is 2-5 inches in diameter 1 inch high.
