Plant Type: Perennials

A profusion of lavender blue, 1 inch long, fluted bell shaped flowers, smother the bright evergreen foliage from late spring to late summer.  Deadheading regularly will insure a profuse bloom period.  A vigorous grower, forming spreading mats by underground runners. Makes a good ground cover, and can also be used in containers, rock gardens, on slopes, or in crevices.

Most members of this group appreciate some afternoon shade in southern regions. Plants can be propagated either by seed or division in early spring or early fall.
