Plant Description

We have grown Blue Star Creeper for years and had assumed that White Star Creeper was merely an alternate color of the same plant. As it turns out, it’s a completely different species that comes from New Zealand home of the Blue Star Creeper. We love its low growing carpet-forming habit along with its covering of small white star-shaped flowers for several weeks in spring. It is sometimes referred to as being ‘Stepable”, but it looks pretty bad if it is walked on. With average watering and an enriched soil, it will thicken up nicely even in full sun. Both the blue and white Star Creepers have bounced around in and out of several genera, including Laureantia, Isotoma, Lobelia and Pratia.
