Bacopa: A Field Guide
Sutera cordata is one of the easiest, most versatile plants to grow, with its pretty little flowers spilling over the side of a planter or as a perennial ground cover in warm climates.
Depending on variety, the South African native can grow two to eight inches tall, and spread two to four feet wide. Bacopa is covered with tiny white, lavender, or pink blooms from spring until frost, and will flower year-round where winters are mild.
