Special Attributes

Goldilocks creeping jenny is a fast growing, spreading evergreeen groundcover plant with small, rounded, bright golden yellow leaves that turn orange in winter. The plant form a low (2-3" tall), dense, leafy mat with vines that root to the ground as they spread. Creeping Jenny ideal is for use as a groundcover in partly shaded areas of the landscape, and is an ideal choice for a soil cover in container gardens where it's vines spill over the edges of pots. With its small, bright golden-yellow leaves it provides a wonderful contrast of color and texture, especially with plants and trees with darker foliage.  



Landscape & Garden Uses

Because it's so colorful, quickly fills a space, and is low maintenance, we use Creeping Jenny extensively in our gardens as a groundcover, border, or underplanting for shrubs and trees. Perfect for use between widely-spaced stepping stones. It also is ideal for planting in pots or hanging baskets, where it will spill over the edges of containers. It even grows in pots situated in the margins of our garden ponds. A fine addition to shade, woodland, yellow color theme gardens, and Asian theme gardens.

Suggested Spacing:  18 to 24 inches for mass plantings





Cultural Preferences

Creeping Jenny is very easy to grow in most any moist well-drained to wet soil of average fertility and part sun or shade. Though it prefers a moist soil, established plants growing in shade or afternoon shade are quite drought tolerant. The foliage tends to be more yellow with 3 to 4 hours of sun per day and chartreuse in mostly shade. Morning sun and filtered afternoon sun are okay. Evergreen in warmer climates. Foliage may die back in colder climates.
