It looks lovely. How hardy is it? Can you walk on it? I’m looking for alternatives to@lawn as I’m allergic to grasses

@gardenfiend #baby’s tears makes an attractive and maintenance-free alternative to grass as ground cover in moist, shady areas. It will tolerate sun or shade. Frost hardy and will grow vigorously in spring.

@gardenfiend there are other alternatives like #Rupture Wort – Green Carpet This plant is super tough and like a carpet can handle heavy foot traffic areas.  The foliage is nice and green and turns bronze-red in the winter.  And while it delivers tiny white blossoms, they are so small it won’t attract bees. And the added bonus it is just about as rugged as grass.

@gardenfiend there is also #Brass #Buttons #Leptinella #Squalida is an excellent evergreen plant for paths and walkways. It is low growing and very easy to care. The feathery, fern like foliage would make you think it is fragile and delicate but in fact it is a very tough plant that can take light foot traffic pretty well. If you want a speedy coverage than Brass Buttons is one of the best choices.
