Product Description & Reviews

Perennial Peanut (Arachis Pintoi) is an attractive, low-maintenance ground cover that blooms bright yellow flowers from spring to first-frost. This drought-tolerant, hardy perennial requires little or no supplemental water after it is established. Perennial peanut is an excellent choice as an alternative ground cover for lawns and golf courses during times of drought. It is the same genus as the peanuts that we eat, however Perennial Peanut produces only a very small pod and a tiny seed. Since this variety of Peanut produces so few seeds, propagation of the plant is generally done by its rhizomes. These rhizomes (underground stems) are dug up and planted in another location. Perennial Peanut was introduced into Florida in the 1930's, and originated in South America. The plant is becoming popular by commercial companies as ground cover in many areas. The perennial is considered environmentally friendly because of its high tolerance to Florida's climate (even in drought conditions) and resistance to disease, insects and nematodes. In addition, because it is a legume, it requires no additional nitrogen fertilizer and has the ability to improve phosphorus availability in the soil that it lives in. Ornamental perennial peanut is being tested in many areas, including the University of Florida, as a substitute for the water-loving turf that has been used in the past. It grows in sunny and partially shaded areas. Because of its underground rhizomes it is also ideal for stabilizing soil on inclines, around culverts and other structures. Studies by the University of Florida have shown that for best results, perennial peanut should be planted from January through March. However, even when planted during the other months, the plant survived and established itself. Planting in the first few months of the year will simply allow the peanut to establish roots faster.
