How to Care for Creeping Jenny
Be sure to check out these recommendations for Creeping Jenny care, so that your plant thrives in its new home.
How Do I Plant Creeping Jenny?
Creeping Jenny, also known as Twopenny Grass, is considered a 'spill' in the thrill-fill-spill formula for planters and gardens since it will trail beautifully as it spreads. When planting, dig a hole and position the plant so that it will be at the same depth it was in its original container (you should still be able to see some of its soil at ground level when you are finished). Backfill the hole with a mixture of native soil, compost and good organic matter to improve drainage.
How Much Sunlight Does Creeping Jenny Need?
Creeping Jenny is a creeping groundcover that will shine its best golden colors when planted in full sun. It can tolerate partial sun and even some partial shade (no less than 4 to 6 hours of sun a day at least), but it will be a golden-green, almost chartreuse color.
How Much Water Does Creeping Jenny Need?
Creeping Jenny plants can be found in areas near water, so they prefer evenly moist but well-draining soil. If you want to try and slow the spread of this voracious groundcover, watering less often can help but don't let the soil stay dry for too long.
Do I Need To Cut Back My Creeping Jenny?
Creeping Jenny, or Moneywort, is a perennial that easily comes back year after year. You'll want to cut back the spent foliage before winter, and it will stay dormant and reemerge next spring.
