Rupturewort (Herniaria glabra), packet of 100 seeds
Family: Pink (Caryophyllacea)
Hardy to Zones 4 to 8
Evergreen perennial carpet-forming creeper to 2 inches tall. Native to Southern Europe. Pillow-soft, not picky about soil (actually likes to grow in gravel) and gently coumarin-scented. Traditional usage: TWM, urinary tract infection. Plant prefers full sun to part shade and moist, well-drained soil of rockery or driveway. Comely draper. Surface sow in spring. If planning a walkway or herbal lawn, best to sow in small pots. In my opinion, the seed is really too small to direct seed. Transplant potted plants out to about 6 inch spacing. Will soon spread to cover.
100 seeds/pkt., Open-pollinated, untreated, no gmo’s

For driveway: how sturdy are the seedlings? Will the plants survive being driven over? Thank you.

I don’t think the plants will survive being driven over. You might be able to establish them in the center lane where the wheels do not go. Rupturewort is taprooted and spreads out from the taproot. Our potted plants are recommended as they are already 2 years old and would give you a huge jump on the project.
