Brass Buttons are low, carpeting perennials that are perfect for planting along the edge of pathways, or using in between flagstones. This species has tiny, feathery evergreen foliage of deep green, sometimes kissed with bronze in summer. Flowers are green and insignificant. Easy to grow in any soil that does not completely dry out. Easily divided by digging up the clump and ripping into smaller pieces in spring or early fall. This very tiny species is ideal in alpine trough gardens as a groundcover, or as a moss-like carpet in bonsai containers.
