Description

One of the best-ever ground-cover plants which gradually spreads in even the darkest corners, to cover all your soil and get there before the weeds. This variety is semi-evergreen (almost evergreen in mild areas) and was one of Vita Sackville-West’s favourite plants for weed suppression at Sissinghurst.

Care Tips

Position in a gravel garden or border edge where this can gently self seed into small gaps or as a pathway edging in shady places.
