Creeping Fan-flower Scaevola hookeri is a prostrate, matting herb that roots at the nodes, with softly hairy stems and leaves. The single fan-shaped, one-sided flowers are white to pale blue with yellow throats from November to March. Coast Fan-flower is found scattered in coastal heathland and woodland but is more commonly found colonising bare moist ground in the alpine areas. At Venus Bay it occurs on the secondary dunes.
Creeping Fan-flower is an attractive ground cover that can act as a living mulch, with a spread of about 1 metre. Most attractive in flower, the foliage is suitable for rockeries or makes a good border.
