Ludwigia palustris 'Green'


Layouts containing this plant


This plant is a variation of Ludwigia palustris 'Super Red' and has the same form and needs as its parent. It is an easy and reliable stem plant.

Each stalk grows 2-4 cm wide and 10-30+ cm high. The plant readily creates side shoots, and trimming increases the amount, making the plant even denser. The cut-off shoots quickly generate new roots when planted.

An interesting effect can be created by planting 'Super Red' and 'Super Green' together in one group. The red and light green colors will enhance each other visually.
