Itís taken a bit to identify this lovely ground cover in backyard that survives our dogs and looks amazing next to blue dayflower and others, but delighted to know native bees and butterflies enjoy it! Grateful to add that it is helping to replace grass and needs no mowing or watering.

This weed is immune to Glyphosate. The only herbicides that seem to work on this weed is something that contains diquat.
