I am considering adding creeping jenny to a window box that I am putting together. I was just reading that it my crowd out other plants which is my concern. I have daffodils, lily and dahlias planted together does anyone have experience with this plant? I want a tough beautiful trailing plant for full sun I like the way the creeping jenny looks but other suggestions are very welcome.

Thanks
Angela

Angela, I grow this plant in a large pot and love it. It does spread but it is not difficult to pull up. I would plant it toward the front of the window box to cascade over the front and the bulbs to the back. It wouldn't be difficult to pull out what spreads toward the bulbs, if you want to do so.

I love creeping jenny in my planters! It does cover the soil top but doesn't choke the other plants. Just be careful if it ends up on the ground. It can become invasive.
