Nature Walk 4 - Umbrella Pennywort (Hydrocotyle umbellata)



Walking further, I found this carpeting the grass, growing together like tiny little umbrella's.
I have this plant before when I used it for my Water Garden Theme. Its considered as a medicinal plant and also used as a salad.

I use it to garish any fried dishes, (trim the leaves with scissors to a long fine strips)
It taste almost like spring onions.

Tips:

This plant need a lot of water, lack of water may kill the plant (they are not drought resistant)
I usually trim off everything (top) except the runners for new shoots. (treat them like lawn grass)
Other than that, its easy to take care.
