It’s an evergreen ground cover that forms a dense carpet of dark green, rich foliage that measures 8” to 12” inches high. The leaves are oval-shaped grow to be 2” to 4” inches and emerge in whorls at the end of stems.
The small white flowers bloom in early spring and measure 1” to 2” inches long when in full bloom. The petite flowers bring elegance to any yard or garden.
