Lemon Bacopa (Bacopa caroliniana)
This dainty plant is an excellent choice for the edge of the pond or as a trailing plant in the waterfall or stream bed. It spreads quickly and can be used as a ground cover in a bog area. Bright blue flowers adorn the lemon scented foliage all summer. To winter over in colder climates, simply take some cuttings before the first frost in your area and place in water in a bright sunny window indoors.
Lemon Bacopa is often sold as a submerged aquatium plant as a bunch of 5 stem cuttings, but prefers moist soil or very shallow water, especially in strambeds and around waterfalls.
