Water Pennywort




North Africa


Hydrocotyle vulgaris, the water pennywort, is a small creeping aquatic perennial plant. It has lovely neat glossy little peltate mid-green leaves, almost circular with slightly ruffled edges and small, insignificant, greenish-white or purplish white flowers in summer.  Approximate height: 10cm (4 inches)


Hydrocotyle Vulgaris is ideal for growing in as a marginal aquatic plant in mud at the side of a pond or water garden or in up to 2” of standing water. Recommended water depth over crown of plant: 0 - 5cm (0 - 2 inches) . Grow in containers in water gardens.

They do well with medium to partial light. Indirect light is best for Hydrocotyle Vulgaris; it’ll help the leaves grow full and lush.

Water Pennywort likes soil that is good at retaining moisture. When the plant is rooted, it will grow as a stem plant up toward the water surface and light source.


All parts of a plant contain calcium oxalate crystals, an irritant to the mouth and esophagus. They are toxic to cats and dogs.

Landscape Uses
Excellent foliage plant for covering the edge of the pond or underplanting taller species. As a rooted plant, Pennywort can be used in the midground or background. Some hobbyists even keep it in the foreground. 



Trees need to be planted in full sun. Make sure there is no sudden change in temperature. Keep it in semi sunlight for a week before introducing the plant to direct sunlight.

In a pot, you will need to water the plant everyday during the summers and can cut down a bit during winters. Make sure this has a drainage hole at the bottom. For trees planted directly in the garden, you an water it once in 2-3 days for it to develop strong roots. Fertilise in the summer season only.
