Herniaria Glabra Planting Times

I was wondering how late I would be able to plant Herniaria glabra plugs? Would it be ok if they were planted in mid September?

The recommended planting time is late spring to early summer.
I would recommend overwintering them if possible in a greenhouse, but if this is not possible, go ahead and plant out.
Make sure you water well and get them established before they go dormant for the winter.

Can I Use This on a Lawn Currently Grass-Covered?

RE: HERNIARIA GLABRA GREEN CARPET RUPTUREWORT. Will this take over grassy areas, or will the grass have to be removed in order for it to grow? Thanks for your help.

Growers suggest this plant for use in rock gardens, specimen plantings and containers. I did not find information on invasive qualities.

Ground Cover

Can Herniaria Glabra (Green Carpet) tolerate being mowed? Considering replacing weeds/grass with it but live where an Association mows and trims, sometimes weekly. My hesitation is that they will likely mow even if instructed to avoid the area.

According to my research, this cover will stay short. It is likely that if they mow, the plant will be mostly untouched. If it does get cut a little, I don't think it would kill it.
