a form of 'Blue Rug' that is supposed to be a more sparkling blue color. I have 7 of them planted in various places in my z6a landscape. the ones in full sun are definitely doing better then those in partial shade. all but one of these plants are very flat in habit. I don't know if the other was mislabelled, of if it just has a different growth habit, but it has some more upright branches, otherwise looks the same. nice plant.
