Pratia pedunculata – Trailing Pratia

A dainty looking plant which spreads to form a carpet of green, and has masses of starry white to pale mauve-blue small flowers in spring and summer. Good for full sun to partial shade, and is best with regular moisture. A good plant for filling in between plants, stepping stones and paving, or as a low traffic lawn substitute. It roots at the nodes, so forms a mat of growth. The plant can be divided to propagate. Frost tender.
