Plant Details

A dainty little alpine, which prefers light or full shade in well drained soil. Shallow rooting, it forms a creeping mat and will grow in cracks between rocks or slabs or in a container or gravel garden etc. Lovely sky-blue flowers in spring and summer and often through to autumn. Vigorous but not invasive. 

Shallow rooted, which is why it grows in cracks etc.

Can be grown in a lawn among the grass for an interesting effect when it flowers.

Height and Spread: 5cm x 50cm

From Australia but hardy in the UK.

Common name: Blue Star Creeper

Synonym: Lobelia pedunculata

All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted 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.
