Mat forming perennial from Western Europe. Has small mid green, obovate, leathery leaves. Bears terminal racemes of deep blue flowers with a white fringed lip. From a distance the flowers look pea like but on closer inspection are very diffferent.

Flowers April - July.

Prefers sharply drained, moderately fertile, humus rich soil with shade from the sun in the hottest part of the day.
