Leptinella squalida 'Platt's Black'

Brass Buttons

Watch video on YouTube

Miniature leaves of dark bronze and green have a fern-like appearance and form a mat soft enough for a fairy to nap on. At only 2” in height the tiny leaves are ideal for filling in cracks and crevices, between stones, in a rock garden, or as a grass substitute for a small area of lawn. Tiny yellow flowers are produced in spring. Provide afternoon shade and average moisture.

Brass Buttons Growing and Maintenance Tips:
