Very beautiful groundcover! Has stood up to the test of kids and dogs trompling it day in and day out and always looks beautiful. Gets great purple blooms on it but they dont last very long. It will grow anywhere, shade or sun and maintains its beautiful purple/green foliage. I purposely planted some in a small crack in-between a landscape timber and a patio block and it grows beautifully there. I even have some growing in my pond. It can be a bit invasive but is easy to control by just pulling up what you dont want. It comes up with very little effort.
