A ground cover that will...cover the ground. Although the green form is a weed in southern gardens, you might as well have the variegated form. The round 1.5" wide leaves of greyish green are surrounded by a contrasting white edge. In spring, the tiny pale purple flowers adorn the plant. Do not plant this near smaller plants unless they know karate, judo, takewondo, or other japanese words.
