Creeping jenny is an excellent cover for edges of water gardens or waterfalls. It grows to about 1-2 inches and creeps in the moist soil or water to 1 inch deep. Its rounded leaves will clasp onto other leaves and form a tight clump of foliage with yellow, buttercup-like flowers appearing throughout the summer. It will grow in sun or shade. You can take short stem cuttings of this plant and begin new ones in a mixture of equal parts peat and perlite.
I always have this plant in several areas of my pond covering rock edges, waterfalls and areas in my bog that I like to hide. Its an easy plant to grow and is enjoyed by its bright yellow flowers and attractive foliage.
