Comments: This ground cover produces rounded, puckered leaves with prominent veins. The small white flowers have little ornamental value. This is a great ground cover for raised planters because the foliage drapes beautifully over the edge of planters and other raised beds. The foliage turns a reddish color during cold winters. There are a few insect and disease problem that occasionally attack this perennial, but they are not normally serious. Drought tolerant once established.
