This pretty little workhorse has been a top seller for the STEPABLES® brand. It's easy to grow and extremely versatile because it's so rugged. You can use Blue Star Creeper as a lawn substitute, around pools, in the garden, on pavers and even in pots. A great feature of Blue Star Creeper is that is remains in bloom pretty much all season, until frost. In warmer climates Isotoma can remain evergreen all year, however in hot summer climates it will need some shade in the summer.
