Blue Star Creeper
Evergreen, Ground covers, Perennials
Small, ground-hugging plants that reach just 2–3 in. high in bloom, with creeping, branching stems that root at the joints. All are useful low ground covers where soil is reasonably rich and well drained.
Set plants 8–12 in. apart; fertilize periodically. Small, closely set leaves and tolerance for an occasional footstep make them choice selections for use between steppingstones. They resemble baby–s tears (Soleirolia) but offer appealing flowers as well as attractive foliage. Can be invasive where well adapted.Pratia pedunculata
