A pretty ground cover plant with blue-green foliage that I've had for years. I grows best in humus-rich, well-drained soil. It can tolerate partial shade, but prefers full sun. It spreads slowly so no danger of it taking over. It is well suited as a ground cover in a rose border or at the front of a perennial border. The foliage colour goes especially well with white or pink flowers. The flowers are tiny, cream coloured in round clusters. They are not the reason this plant is grown in gardens. The foliage is the main attraction.
