Hard pads of tiny leaves with a lovely colour - almost golden, but not quite. A superb little foliage plant, happy on the rock garden where it can fill those bare patches between all the flowering stars and will mould itself around and over rocks. Good in a stone trough too, it will drape over the edges. It's attractive in a quieter way and it's a very good alpine. Only 2cm (less than 1") high.
This plant will flower but the flowers, like many good foliage plants, are secondary. Differs from the more commonly offered Scleranthus biflorus by having brighter foliage and we think this one (S. uniflorus) is a far superior plant. We like it a lot.
