Gardening Tips from Fran
Blue Star Creeper is one of those plants you cannot write enough great things about. I think it hits every criteria we have except drought tolerent. Even that I am rethinking after watching it make it through an incrediblly tough drought year in Oregon. It grows on top of the ground and underneath as well, sending out runners and creeping through just about any scenario you give it! Blue Star Creepeer loves dog foot traffic, car traffic (with a gravel base) and of course human foot traffic as well! It is an exceptional lawn substitute, pathway plant and the most sensational bark/mulch replacement plant. Put it in a pot, drape it over a wall or stuff it into a wire basket for a unique planter! Isotoma fluviatilis is great in Full Sun to Part Shade Northern US states, Part Sun to Shade in Southern half of US. If you have extreme cold, it may not be the best for you with the given climate Mother Nature is handing us these days. However, saying that, in a more protected micro-climate in a yard, I suspect it will do fine.
