Answer: Baby's Tears (Soleirolia) is a low-growing plant with tiny round leaves that creeps along, making an attractive carpet of green. It can become invasive, but is so shallow-rooted that it shouldn't harm larger plants. If you like the appearance of Baby's Tears in your planter, allow it to grow. If it becomes a pest, pull out the above-ground parts in the autumn. Any remaining roots or stems will sprout new foliage the following spring.
