Bacopa caroliniana 'Lemon Bacopa'

A great option for individuals that like stem plants but do not enjoy having to trim often, Bacopa caroliniana is a slow-growing, easy alternative. As with other stem plants, Bacopa caroliniana looks best when planted in small groups. Individual stems will grow towards the water's surface and will produce purple flowers if the surface is breached.

Accustomed to growing both submersed and emersed, Bacopa caroliniana is a great candidate for ponds, terrariums, and aquariums. Also called "Lemon Bacopa," this freshwater aquatic plant releases a characteristic lemony smell when its leaves are crushed.
