Plant Details

Where Can the Blue Star Creeper Grow?

Native to Australia, this dainty creeper is excellent for growing between stepping stones, filling in niches in rock walls, or forming a prostrate ground cover. It produces an inch-tall mat of tiny, oval leaves. Equally tiny light blue flowers appear atop the foliage in spring. 'Alba' has white blooms. 'County Park' has deep blue flowers. Formerly known as Laurentia fluviatilis or Isotoma fluviatilis.

Blue Star Creeper Care Tips
