Cotula sericea

Silky, sprawling herbaceous perennial with solitary button-like flowers of 10 to 15 mm in diameter on elongate leafless stalks. The leaves and stems are covered in fine hairs, giving it a silky smooth texture.

Their life span is only a couple of years but due to their sprawling stems that root when touching the ground, they give the impression of longevity.
