Pratia pedunculata (R.Br.) Benth

Lobelia pedunculata, commonly known as matted pratia, trailing pratia or blue star creeper is a perennial herb from Australia.[2][1][3]

It has sky-blue starry flowers, and can spread by underground stolon. In a garden setting some gardeners have found its ability to spread to be a nuisance.[4][5]
