Pratia pedunculata 'County Park'
Zones 6 to 9.
Full sun to part shade to full shade.
Plants reach 1 to 2 inches tall and 6 to 12 inches wide;
creeping perennial ground cover.
Growth rate: vigorous, spreads via runners just under the soil.
Evergreen to semi-evergreen forms a carpet of tiny green, ovate leaves, covered with star shaped, bright blue flowers all summer. Excellent, long-blooming groundcover can withstand moderate foot traffic.
'County Park' grows in most locations, though it performs best in peaty, well-drained soil, with consistent moisture. Minimal care is required, and can be cut back to keep contained. Fertilize if leaves turn yellowish. Tolerant of boggy conditions and foot traffic, 'County Park' is an excellent choice for between stepping stones in damp areas.
Excellent as in containers or hanging baskets, as edging, ground cover, between stepping stones and mass plantings.
Ten (10) plants in 4.5 inch containers per flat (or tray).

The plants we received were so big and strong, we were able to divide each into four (and could have probably been divided much further) for our use of them between stepping stones.
