Hydropyllum tenuipes

Pacific Waterleaf is an aggressive rhizomatous spreading native groundcover capable of competing for space with English ivy. Leaves can be up to 12” long and 8” wide, with 5-9 pinnate to odd number of deeply cut, toothed lobes with sharp points. Soft hairs on the leaves make them feel fuzzy. Flowers consist of cream, greenish, lavender or blue bells in bell-shapes. The stamens of the flowers extend well past the floral tissue.
