Feet, paws and fire proof! This carefree native of CA and beyond is probably one of the best lawn substitutes – especially for difficult areas where nothing will grow! Highly adaptive to most soils: wet, dry, even clay. Plant 2’ apart for a quick, dense, creeping turf only 2” tall or use it for erosion control. Pretty 1/2” lavender-pink flower clusters appear Spring thru Fall, attracting many small butterflies and bees. Shear flowers periodically if bees are a problem. Evergreen, but after cold Winters, toss about some compost for lush, new growth. Edging prevents it from spreading into unwanted areas.
