Is Ornamental Perennial Peanut the ultimate hot climate ground cover? Could be. Ornamental peanut has many advantages over grass. It can be used for large areas, borders and beds, slopes and more. Plus.. you can:
Walk on it
Drive on it
Install it in in blazing sun and poor soil
Soft for bare feet
OH.. and as a bonus, it has pretty yellow flowers!
You'll see it growing in full sun in medians, and it's fine in part shade too. It's drought tolerant once established. There are several varieties of Perennial Peanut. We have them all, and some are better for some environments than others. This particular variety is called "golden glory"
Perennial ornamental peanut is an EZ care groundcover that stays low and can serve many purposes. Use it in high foot traffic areas, its soft and cool on bare feet. It can be used in storm water runoff areas for mitigation. Plant on a slope for slope stabilization. Some varieties spread through rhizomes so is easy to control (you won't have it popping up in your planters because it does not spread by seed) Even the flowers are edible! they have a slight peanut taste :) It can be mowed any time you want to see it a little tighter.
