Spreading mats of finely cut, coppery grey leaves with red burrs in summer.
Kupferteppich (Copper Carpet) grows as spreading mats of finely cut leaves, coppery grey in colour. The flowers appear in summer as little white globes and develop into spiky red burrs which persist into autumn - these look especially good against the dark foliage.
Prefers a sunny site and is tolerant of most free-draining soils. 5cm (2") high. An easily grown plant ideal for covering larger areas, especially in or around paving and gravel or over walls. It can make good cover for dwarf bulbs too.
