One of the few ground covers that grow equally well in sun or semi-shade. Plants make a compact, upright bush of eight to twelve inches in height. The pale violet flowers have deep purple blotches on the lower petals with yellow inside. The cool colors are a welcome relief during the heat of summer. This everblooming ground cover looks like a bright blanket. Attracts bufferflies and makes a blooming atmosphere. Easy to grow, drought tolerant.
