Design Ideas: This blue mat-like perennial looks gorgeous around rocks and landscape boulders. Use at the top of retaining walls or to soften unsightly curbs. Like a groundcover, it spreads over a very large area. Great on slopes, berms and banks to offer both color and erosion control. Though it's ideal for the traditional rock garden, it's also a natural in the Mediterranean landscape.

Thrives in well-drained, slightly acidic soil. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Space 2 to 3 ft. apart as groundcover; closer for faster coverage. Control weeds with mulch until plants fill in.

Rock Garden Perfection!
by Donna, May 11, 2017

I have a dry riverbed and this plant was bought x3. Love this with another blue ground cover plant that escapes me by name. I had that one two seasons already and it is slow too but starting to really flow. These three beauties came very healthy and look fantastic in my front yard dry riverbed!
