Plant Details

A wonderful, although rarely seen, very low growing creeping perennial. Happy in very wet soil and average soil. Beautiful flowers from late spring right through summer and forms a dense matt of bright green tough foliage. Is beginning to be used as a lawn substitute in some areas because it can tolerate being walked on.

Native of the Himalayas.

Height: 5cm

Common name(s): Chinese marshflower, Creeping Mazus

All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
