Are you after a low growing plant that’s tough, has pretty little flowers, and doesn’t mind neglect? 
Sounds too perfect, but there is such a plant and it’s endemic to Australia. 
Let’s find out more about creeping boobialla
I'm talking with Adrian O’Mally, qualified horticulturist and native plant expert. 

Also bird and insect attracting makes it a lovely addition to your garden. 

This is one tough little plant, coping with dry sandy soils for long periods, even saline soils.
Excellent as a bank stabiliser in sun or part shade.

Creeping boobialla is also excellent as a lawn alternative in low traffic areas.

Once the plant has established, you can virtually forget it about.
