Subshrub of small proportions. It gets the same blue button flowers as other globularias we've grown, but on a smaller scale, with, as the species name suggests, a creeping habit: foliage doesn't grow higher than about 2 inches, with flowers on short stems above, perhaps to 4". It's happy in our rock garden.
||matted globe daisy
||blue (late spring)
In late February, when even the perennials that maintain some chlorophyll mostly look decidedly shabby, this globe daisy pops out with verdant green. Very welcome, in the drab days before spring's arrival.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
One or more images of this plant are included in my stock photo catalog
