    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.
