Rupturewort, Herniaria glabra, is a no-nonsense, spreading groundcover. Its moderate growth rate keeps it easily contained between flagstones, when used as edging, and in containers. The pretty little leaves are striking enough to create a focal point in rock gardens and small beds. Rupturewort, Herniaria glabra is amazingly resilient and sturdy. It makes a dynamic lawn substitute in areas that get light to moderate foot traffic. The bronze winter color is just another added benefit of planting this sweet but tough little evergreen.
