A marked improvement over the straight species, 'Green Carpet' provides you with a dense, neat growing, non-floppy plant that thrives in full shade. This is the perfect groundcover for growing in dense shade or under a tree where it seems like nothing else survives. 'Green Carpet' will survive and thrive, producing a uniform stand of upright stems, densely packed with deep green, lustrous, evergreen foliage that looks great year round. 'Green Carpet' spreads by stolons and works well in high erosion areas to tightly bind the soil and land to reduce further loss. This selection is drought tolerant, easy to grow and, although its terminal spring blooming spikes of small white flowers are somewhat inconspicuous, it is a great looking plant.
