    Pairs of dark green leaves develop along the long trailing stems, eventually creating a dense mat of rich green foliage that can be used to help keep weeds at bay. The 5-petalled flowers, which appear on long stalks, are a rich shade of plum-purple.

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