Gardeners' Notes:

Lovely little low ground cover that grows well in my very dry and very neglected front garden making a blue carpet in the spring. I highly recommend this pretty little plant which thrives on neglect -- in the Rocky Mts, that I can speak for.

Spreads wonderfully though not invasively. Evergreen in zone 6 with a nice purple hue in winter.
Does require well grained soil!
I have found given well drained soil and a once a yr time release fertilizer it is very carefree.

A very short groundcover. Its great merits in the arid west are the heat, sun , and drought tolerances. Small blueish flowers are correlated to amount of sun. Divides well and makes a good understory plant, as it does not strangle other plants or mat over them.

The problem I have with it is my own fault- It shows no drought stress to tell me when I need to water the soil it sits on, and the other plants there suffer when I do not water them enough!
This is my favourite groundcover of all time; my apologies for the overflow of photographs.

Probably a hybrid between V. liwanensis and V. pectinata.
