Best plants to grow between pavers Australia
Here are the best plants for between pavers that will happily grow in Australia.
1. Rock cress
Rock cress (also known as Aubrieta deltoidea) is a spring perennial that thrives in Australia. Its bright blooms and the fact that it grows close to the ground make it a popular choice for gardeners.
Rock cress prefers to grow in full sun or partial shade. It thrives in well-draining soil and rocky or paved outdoor areas. Water new rock cress well, but once it’s established, avoid overwatering as excessive moisture can lead to root rot or other fungal diseases. Allow the soil to dry out slightly between waterings.
Sedum is an excellent choice for gardeners looking for a low-maintenance, drought-tolerant plant. Sedum plants generally prefer full sun to thrive and achieve their best growth.
Water thoroughly but infrequently as sedum prefers dry to moderately moist soil conditions.
Pratia, known for its delicate flowers, thrives in the Australian climate, making it an ideal choice for gardeners looking for a fast-growing ground cover.
Pratia prefers to be planted in a sunny to a part shady spot in well-drained soil. It flowers in spring and summer when the weather is warm. But keep an eye on it because it can get out of control quickly.
Chamomile is another excellent choice to plant between pavers. It thrives in full sun to partial shade, requiring at least six hours of direct sunlight daily. When it comes to watering, chamomile prefers to be consistently moist in well-drained soil, taking care not to waterlog the plant.
As for chamomile species, the Roman chamomile is a perennial and will return year after year; the German chamomile is an annual and will die off at the end of the flowering season.
