  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: any but very dry soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: April to September
  • Flower colour: violet-blue
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    For many months from spring to autumn, large violet-blue flowers nestle amongst the yellow-marginned, dark green leaves, putting on a very pretty display. This creeping, evergreen plant, provides valuable groundcover, often in quite inhospitable settings where little else will grow.

  • Garden care: To prevent the plant from becoming invasive cut back any unwanted shoots in spring.
