Description / Isotoma Blue Star Creeper

Isotoma Blue Star Creeper is an evergreen perennial ground cover that offers year-round interest and blooms from early spring into summer, creating a colorful carpet of small star-shaped pale blue flowers hovering above a dense, lush mat of fine-textured green foliage.

An Isotoma fluviatilis variety, commonly called blue star creeper, laurentia, or swamp isotome, Blue Star is a native of Australia. It has a medium growth rate and a low growing, spreading habit. It's great for underplanting and erosion control, but it holds up well to foot traffic, making it ideal for planting along pathways and between paving stones or for replacing turf lawn, in moderate climates. It also makes a nice bedding plant and looks lovely cascading from a container or hanging basket.

A low maintenance plant, blue star creeper grows best in partly shady locations with fertile, consistently moist, well-draining soil. But it tolerates a wide range of soils, including loamy, sandy, and rocky soils, as well as full sun in cold climates, as long as it's well-watered. It does not require deadheading but may benefit from a good shearing to about 1-inch tall in late fall to keep it tidy through winter.
