Water hyssop (Bacopa monnieri) is a creeping,mat-forming perennial plant that is native to warm wetland environments over much of the world. Small succulent leaves cover stems that can extend up to 4 feet, and small bell-shaped white flowers are present from spring through fall—or even year-round, in warmer climates. It is a very adaptable plant that can grow in moist soil as well as completely submerged in water up to 12 inches deep. Tolerant of even the most brackish waters, this plant has the potential for escaping and invading native wetlands, so it should be used carefully. Water hyssop is a fast-growing species that can be planted at almost any time.
