Laurentia fluviatilis

 


Partial Shade

Laurentia fluviatilis (Campanulaceae)
(laur-ENT-ee-a fluv-ee-AT-il-is)
Blue Star Creeper

This diminutive deciduous groundcover carpets itself with 1/4" powder blue flowers that seem to float above the tiny round leaves from late spring until fall. Laurentia grows well for us in a partly shaded fertile soil where it forms a dainty mat beneath taller plants. A bit of morning sun is acceptable.
