This deciduous aquatic Southeast US native grows like regular Moneywort, with heart-shaped leaves that creep along the ground. From each node arises a tiny, cute blue flower.
Lindernia grandiflora (Blue Moneywort) is a mat-forming, semi-evergreen, aquatic perennial with fleshy, rounded to heart-shaped, bright green leaves and small, tubular, violet and white flowers in summer, year-round in warm climates. Lindernia grandiflora is a plant in the Figwort Family (Scrophulariaceae) that comes from the southeastern United States. At one time, it was called Ilysanthes grandiflora and although changed to Lindernia many years ago, it is often still sold under this name or as Ilysanthes floribunda. Lindernia grandiflora, also called Blue Moneywort and Savannah False Pimpernel, comes from pinelands, marshes and swamps in Georgia and Florida south to Broward and Collier counties. It is considered a facultative wetland plant meaning that it usually occurs in wetlands, but occasionally can be found in non-wetland areas. It is a ground-hugging herbaceous perennial to 2-3 inches in height with 1/2 inch wide succulent light green heart-shaped leaves. The small violet-blue flowers with white markings rise above the foliage and are produced continuously while temperatures are warm enough for active growth.
Plant in full sun to light shade (requires shade in hot locations). Hardy to 0 degrees F and evergreen in temperate and frost-free climates. Grows best when given regular irrigation and tolerates waterlogged conditions. Useful as a flat ground cover between stepping stones or to surround rocks or steps in the landscape. Good for spilling out of containers and in hanging baskets and thrives in the moist boggy soil at the edge of a pond.
