Phyla nodiflora var. incisa
This cheerful little Texas native is not just any ordinary groundcover! With its bright, smooth leaves and a tendency to spread, it's the life of the garden party. The sweet white flowers, with a pop of purple in the center, dance across the ground in droves, making it an eye-catching display. And the best part? This groundcover loves to soak up the sun, and is tough enough to handle droughts like a champ. So, give it a little extra TLC with regular water, and watch it grow into a full and thriving garden masterpiece. With roots in the verbena family, it's part of a group of 75 genera and 3,000 species of plants, known for their beauty and versatility. Whether it's a prized furniture wood like teak, or a decorative pick like Vervain, Lantana, Lippia, Frog Fruit, Chaste Tree, or Vitex, this family has it all!
