I know I use the word "Adorable" much too frequently to describe plants, but if you can come up with a better word to describe this adorable little plant, my hat is off to you.

Probably showing my age by understanding that this plant was named for "The Fab Four" and I'm sure that some of you weren't even born in 1964 when the Beatles made their debut on the Ed Sullivan show, so bear with me here.

This "moppy" plant makes a fine groundcover as its swirly foliage sweeps around, gracefully flowing on the ground below its crown.

I'd love to see a whole lawn carpeted in it as it would mean no mowing, the height rarely exceeds 3"-5".

Full sun to full shade, moist to average soil, ANOTHER "Idiot Proof" plant.
