Pennywort is a popular low-growing pond plant with very attractive foliage! The petite, round leaves have a scalloped margin, thick & leathery texture, with a glossy finish! This unique plant grows upright out of shallow water, and rises a few inches above the water’s surface. It may also be used as a trailing plant along waterfalls/streams, as a unique indoor houseplant, or even in an aquarium! Pennywort is low maintenance and fast growing, making it a great choice for quickly naturalizing rocky pond edges. Bear in mind, this plant spreads proflicially and should only be used in contained water garden settings. If you wish to minimize spread, pot this plant before placing it in the pond!
