This is also known as golden Irish moss, a name which describes its appearance well. The very tiny golden leaves are so dense on this mat-forming groundcover that the word "moss" does seem like a good comparison. It is especially useful in woodland areas where its glowing evergreen leaves can accent the darker foliage of larger perennials. The foliage browns out if it does not receive adequate moisture during dry spells. Soleirolia soleirolii `Aurea' can also go deciduous if subjected to extended periods of temperatures below freezing.
