Basic Care Guide
Transplant
18-24 inches (45-60 cm)
The perfect window for nestling creeping peanut into its new spot is during the gently warming days from mid to late spring, fostering robust growth. Choose a sunny locale with good drainage, and while transplanting isn't fussy, keeping roots intact ensures a smooth transition.
Transplant Techniques
Pruning
Early spring, Late winter
A nitrogen-fixing groundcover, creeping peanut thrives with routine trimming to encourage dense growth. Prune in late winter or early spring, before the new growth cycle. Utilize sharp shears to maintain a desired shape, remove any damaged or diseased foliage. Regular pruning benefits creeping peanut by preventing overgrowth, promoting a lush carpet-like appearance, and can rejuvenate older plants. Gardeners should ensure cleanliness of tools to avoid disease transmission.
Pruning techniques
Propagation
Spring
Creeping peanut is a durable ground cover plant known for its dense, low-lying foliage and suitability for warm climates. Effective propagation of creeping peanut primarily involves vegetative strategies such as division wherein sections of the plant are separated to create new individuals. This method ensures the genetic consistency of offspring and usually results in a more reliable establishment. Another common method is to use runners or stolons, which creeping peanut readily produces, allowing for easy cultivation and spreading in an appropriate environment. Careful handling when transplanting segments or rooting stolons will help maintain the health and growth vigor of creeping peanut.
