Description

Pratia pedunculata's dainty green leaves form a low carpet that is bejeweled with tiny blue stars from spring through summer. Also called Little Star Creeper, this perennial ground cover spreads rapidly both above and below ground. Pratia pedunculata may be hard to control, so plant where spreading is not a problem. Use around pavers, hanging over a wall or filling in around rocks and shrubs in the alpine garden.

Pratia pedunculata is happy in sun or light shade and average to moist soil. It can withstand both occasional drought and periodic wet conditions. Little Star Creeper tolerates heavy foot traffic. Space on 8" centers.

    We ship via UPS or USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

    All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

    Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

    We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
