Sleeping Beauty

Sleeping Beauty, also known as Creeping Wood Sorrel and Jeepers Creepers are durable perennial plants.  Their low spreading habit makes them ideal for use as a ground-cover, lawn substitute, pathway or edging plant. Some types will even tolerate foot traffic!  A diminutive, spreading ground-cover, blooms all-year round and makes a superb plant in humus rich soils.

“What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again.” ~ Suzanne Collins
