Bacopa monnieri, also known as Brahmi, Coastal Waterhyssop, Thyme-leafed gratiola, or Water hyssop is a perennial, creeping herb whose habitat includes wetlands and muddy shores. It likes wet feet and makes a great near the pond plant.

The leaves of Bacopa are succulent.  The flowers are small and white, with four or five petals. Its ability to grow in water makes it a popular aquarium plant. It can even thrive in slightly brackish conditions.This plant is just as happy submerged as it is on boggy conditions. Bacopa flower on  a regular      rugular rbasis but these will soon rot if underwater and it is very rare that seeds will be formed. It is used in many medicines especially for epilepsy and asthma, in Vietnam is is also used in their cuisine.

Bacopa or Brahmi has many pruported health benefits and is sometimes called a nootropic plant.  I'm no doctor, but I think Bacopa monnirei makes a lovely groundcover
