Tips from Fran
Herniaria is one of those unsung heroes that gets pass by, but shouldnt. This plant has such a small flower that you need a magnifying glass to see it, yet that should not stop you. When looking for a green substitute for lawn, this one does the trick well. Its not fancy, not tricky, but a solid workhorse of a plant.
