Creeping Myrtle is a pretty ground cover that yields medium purple, blue, or lavender leaves.
It is an evergreen runner that grows quickly. The plant is ideal for gardens and flower beds and grows best in hardiness zones 3-9. Dry to medium soil is best for this plant. Creeping myrtle is spring/summer plants, and need full sun or partial shade to thrive.
Creeping myrtle makes a stunning addition to any home garden. The plant can take root anywhere a stem meets the ground, and it will thrive until the blooming season ends. You can quickly stimulate new growth by cutting the myrtle back about four inches at the start of spring.
Creeping myrtle grows between 4-8 inches at maturity, but some myrtles can grow as much as 12 inches tall.
The plant is also deer-resistant, which is ideal for your landscape if you have deer in your area. The ground cover looks great around flower beds and trees. Once the creeping myrtle has bloomed for the year, the stunning green leaves will remain until the flowers appear again.
If you already have daffodils or daisies in your garden, the creeping myrtle makes a wonderful addition. The myrtle is one of the first vines to bloom in the spring. While the plant is known for is periwinkle flowers, some plants yield white or purple blooms. The plants are also rabbit-resistant, so these small creatures can run through your yard without ruining your myrtle. If your yard is hilly, you can plant creeping myrtle to add visual appeal to the landscape and keep your soil from eroding. Creeping myrtle is also great for areas of your landscape where other flowers don't grow or thrive. To keep the plant healthy, water it about 4 times a week and keep the undergrowth cut to maintain the vital nature of the creeping myrtle.
