Brief Summary

Read full entry
Moss pygmyweed is a very small plant. In fact, it is the smallest flowering land plant in the Netherlands. It looks a lot like a moss, which explains the Dutch name 'moss flower'. The young succulent leaves begin green, but turn orange and then red as they age. You generally only notice the plant when it's red. Just like wall-pepper, if parts of the plant break off, they easily take root elsewhere.
