‘Platt’s Black’ is a cultivar in which the unusual near black foliage is the real attraction. Delicate, fern-like leaves (to 2” long and to 1/2” wide) are obovate. Foliage will tolerate some foot traffic. Dark gold insignificant flowers bloom in early summer, and are followed by tiny fruit.

Native to New Zealand, brass buttons is a rhizomatous, mat-forming ground cover that grows to only 2” tall but spreads indefinitely by runners. It features button-like yellow flowers and fern-like green leaves.

A low, carpeting perennial that is perfect for planting along pathways or using in between flagstones. Easy to grow in any soil that does not completely dry out.
