Plant Details
Botanical Name:
Lessingia flilaginifolia 'Silver Carpet'

Common Name(s):
Silver Carpet Lessingia, California Aster

El Nativo Growers, Inc
Lessingia 'Silver Carpet' is one of the best native groundcovers for use in large areas. It grows very quickly once established in the ground and requires little to no care. It will tolerate almost regular water to very little. The fuzzy silver foliage remains attractive through most of the year. Small pink to lavender flowers appear on the foliage intermittently throughout the year for added interest. This plant is very vigorous and should not be planted in small areas. It will easily grow to 6-8'+W
