The Bacopa plant is an attractive flowering groundcover. It’s identification can be a bit confusing as it shares a common name with a medicinal herb that is in fact a different plant altogether. The low-growing specimen spreads vigorously to cascade over a wall or quickly cover bare spots under taller plants. Growing Bacopa plants is most easily done in containers. This allows for the consistent moisture necessary to avoid the interruption of flowering. Use Bacopa trailing annual as a filler plant in mixed containers and hanging baskets.
