Water pennywort's unusual umbrella shaped leaves are very intriguing. They look like a scalloped version of the leaves of the Pilea peperomioides houseplant! It will grow as a vigorous groundcover (across an area of up to 20 feet!) due to creeping roots. Pennywort can grow in moist soils or it can be submerged in shallow water up to 4". Good for ponds and wetlands. Tiny, star-shaped flowers bloom April through October and may attract butterflies.
Mature size: 6 inches tall; 3ft+ wide
Light requirements: Part sun to part shade
The leaves are edible but may cause nausea!
