Pratia pedunculata


Pratia pedunculata - We all need classy yet tough groundcover so here’s Pratia pedunculata, a particularly lovely one that forms a carpet of tiny green leaves and in the warmer months produces beautiful tiny white flowers.

This ground cover is also known as Trailing Pratia or the  matted pratia and it's perfect in-between pavers, stepping stones, or as a lawn alternative in low traffic areas. You can step on her a bit, but not too much.

She also perks up the edges of a planted container and looks a dream in hanging baskets or a window box. She’s versatile, oh-so-pretty and you’ll grow to love the way she fills in gaps, fights weeds, and protects against soil erosion without taking over.

She’s so easy to grow too; we knew you’d like her! Plant out in sun to partial shade in any type of soil. Make sure she isn’t drowned or in boggy conditions and you’ll have a spreading ground cover that just keeps going.

Quick Facts

  • What to use me for:  I’m an ideal spreading ground cover, container edging and alternative to lawn grass. Pop me between old paving slabs for a natural look and introduce me to the rockery. I love it all.

  • I grow to:  1.5cms high - but remember I'm only a ground cover so go easy on my height! I spread to about 60cm wide

  • Where to place me: Plant me in part shade with moist, well draining soil 

  • How far to space me: Space me at 25-30cm apart. I might be small but it doesn’t take us long to join forces.

Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well-developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden.

We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery to your door.

Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently
