Description / Isotoma Blue Star Creeper

An enchanting beauty, Isotoma Blue Star Creeper is an evergreen perennial ground cover that offers a captivating visual display all year round. With its early spring to summer bloom, it adorns your garden with a vibrant tapestry of petite star-shaped pale blue flowers set against a rich backdrop of finely textured green foliage.

Originating from Australia, this variety of Isotoma fluviatilis, also known as blue star creeper, Laurentia, and swamp isotome, grows at a moderate pace, spreading out in a low, dense carpet. It's an excellent choice for underplanting, erosion control, and can withstand foot traffic, making it perfect for path edges and spaces between stepping stones. Its resilience also makes it a suitable replacement for turf lawns in temperate climates. But blue star creeper also shines as a bedding plant, and its cascading charm enhances the appeal of containers and hanging baskets.

Blue star creeper requires minimal maintenance and thrives in partly shady spots with fertile, consistently moist, well-drained soil. However, it's adaptable to a variety of soil types, including loamy, sandy, and rocky terrains. It can also withstand full sun exposure in cooler climates, provided it receives ample water. While deadheading isn't necessary, a light shearing to about 1-inch tall in late fall can help maintain its neat appearance throughout winter.
