A really hardy spreading evergreen which grows wild in the paddocks of our property. A good alternative to moss but far, far hardier to drought conditions. It is a beautiful mossy ground cover for a sunny position, forming a green mound.

Originally from the alpine regions of Australia. It needs a sunny position, but with adequate water in summer and will  not maintain its compact habit in shade. Excellent as groundcover in pots, a good bonsai substitute and great low groundcover in dry rockery or even xeroscape situations.
