Paronychia kapela-Mossy Whitlow-wort

Propagating Paronychia or Mossy Whitlow-wort is accomplished in the spring by digging up the parent plant and dividing the crown into as many transplants as possible that have a good root system. The plant is evergreen down to Zone 4 and can take light foot traffic since it only reahces 2" in height. It has white flowers in June-July but what is strange about the plant, like Poinsettias in bloom, silver bracts appear around the blooms that have the texture of tissue paper and remain until the fall. The plant is drought tolerant once established but also needs good drainage.
