Isotoma axillaris ‘Pink Star’ – Pink Star Creeper

Isotoma axillaris ‘Pink Star’ is a profusely flowering herbaceous perennial plant with pink starry flowers from spring to autumn. It prefers damp well drained soils, full sun to part shade, and needs protection from frosts. It is a hardy and trouble free plant for long lasting floral displays, and has an attractive mounding habit. It is good for borders, rockeries, mass planting and for container growing. The spent flowers shed naturally, a great low maintenance feature of this pretty plant. Water regularly in warm weather, and feed with a native fertiliser in spring.
