Leptinella squalida 'Platt's Black'

Leptinella squalida 'Platt's Black'

Common name brass buttons; dollhouse fern
Family asteraceae
Life cycle perennial (Z4)
Flowers white
Size 6"
Light sun-part shade

Groundcover that tolerates some foot traffic, good between stepping or pathway stones. Button daisies over dark-leaved ferny foliage. The dark color is best with some sun exposure. For now, we have our plant living in a clay pot on our patio, patiently awaiting our decision as to its more permanent living space.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
