Design Ideas: Ideal for a traditional rock garden, where it will gracefully mound up against rockery and landscape boulders. Use to soften the edges of retaining walls or unsightly curbs. Spreads over a very large area, making it perfect for massing on slopes, berms and banks to offer tremendous color and erosion control. The two-toned foliage adds a cooling effect, while the cobalt blue flowers make this a natural for blending into Mediterranean landscapes.

Thrives in well-drained, slightly acidic soil. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. As a ground cover, space plants 2-3 ft. apart, or closer for faster coverage. Control weeds with mulch until plants fill in.
