Pratia, or Blue Star Creeper, can be invasive in some areas but we have found it to not be a problem in out miniature gardens at all here in the PNW. You can enjoy it in a container, or use it as a border plant for our miniature gardening. Can be a bit finicky in extremes - doesn't like to be too wet, too cold, too hot or too dry - but it's a low maintenance plant when put it the right place.

- blue flowers throughout the summer, from May to Sept.

- can be invasive in-ground in some areas, trim runners in spring or shovel-prune judiciously
