Herniaria glabra - Dwarf Rupturewort
Herniaria glabra

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 7a-11  Find Your Zone



Special Attributes

Herniaria glabra, commonly called Rupturewort or Green Carpet, is a creeping plant with tiny, tightly packed leaves that form a very dense, low carpet. The foliage turns red during winter providing great winter interest. Tiny white star-shaped flowers are produced during summer.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Rupturewort is one of those unsung heroes that is underused in the landscape. Growing only 1/2-inch tall and spreading 18 to 24 inches wide, Rupturewort is perfect for planting in the gaps between stepping stones or pavers, along paths or walkways or as a lawn substitute. It does great as an underplanting and around small trees, such as Japanese maples, and shrubs and pereemials. Emerging flower bulb foliage will pop right through it in spring. It also makes a nice soil cover in container gardens.

Suggested Spacing: 12-18" apart for mass plantings





Cultural Preferences

Rupturewort is very easy to grow in a wide range of soils and soil conditions, except for constantly soggy or wet soils. It prefers a moist but well-drained soil of average fertility but also tolerates dry conditions. It grows well in full sun to part shade.
