A small sub shrub that forms dense mats of growth. Much prized as a ground cover plant in both this, the variegated form and the even more boring, green form. Opps sorry, I forgot I am suppsed to be selling these. No room for personal prejudice here!! In truth this plant is a very robust very easy to grow performer and does make a really excellent ground cover, often in less favourable locations. When I have specified it in landscape designs I try to make sure it is under planted with bulbs or over planted with open growing shrubs, trees or even garden art. I guess to me its a bit like Magnolia paint - a good solid reliable background, begging to be marginalised!
