About Pennywort

Hydrocotyle vulgaris, commonly called pennywort, is a ground cover for moist to wet areas. Stems clad with round, peltate, short-stalked leaves (3/4” to 1.5” diameter) with scalloped edges float in very shallow water or creep along the ground, rooting at the nodes as they go. Purplish-green flowers are inconspicuous, appearing in 2-5 flowered umbels among the leaves from June through September. Grows 2-6” tall but spreads indefinitely. Many of the leaves are penny-size, hence the common name.

Genus name comes from the Greek words hydor meaning water and kotyle meaning a small cup.

Pennywort Planting And Care


  • It grows well in bright indirect sunlight.


  • Soil should be well drain and porus.


  • Poke your finger/plain small stick into the soil to check the moisture.

  • Do not overwater the plant.
  • As a rule of thumb, water the plant thoroughly in the summer and reduce watering in winter and rainy season.

Application of fertilizer

  • Apply water immediately after application of fertilizer.

Plant Protection

  • Remove dead, infected or damaged plant parts and discard them away from the plants.
