Oenanthe javanica ‘Flamingo’


Flamingo Creeper

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.395.010


Native to Korea, this interesting foliage plant is related to parsley. The leaves are large and lacy, light green dappled with cream and lavender pink. Umbels of white flowers are held above, but these are not showy and should be clipped off. This forms a fast-growing groundcover that roots wherever it touches the ground, but can be easily controlled by clipping back the runners. Left unchecked it can become invasive in the garden. Would make a delightful addition to hanging baskets or window boxes. Prefers a moist to wet site.
