Creeper Plants Collection

Creeping plants grow along the ground rather than climbing upwards. They spread out horizontally, rooting along stems to cover the ground area. For example, creeping phlox and creeping thyme form carpets of foliage and flowers. They act as ground cover rather than wall or tree trunk cover.

Other creeping plants include ajuga, lamium, sedums like angelina, creeping jenny, and creeping potentilla.

Some trees and shrubs also have a spreading, creeping habit, like bearberry shrubs, creeping junipers, and Japanese spurge. Creepers work well as lush groundcovers or cascading over walls and containers.

Unlike climbing vines, true creepers stay low, spreading widthwise rather than gaining height through vertical structures. Their spreading growth fills in spaces and helps prevent soil erosion.
