Compact, large blooms the first year, no bad habits. Beautiful mauve shade, also comes in white. Spreads in a mound shape. Definitely not a nuisance plant.

This gem hails from the mountain of Spain. It slowly runs to form a mat of small, ground-hugging leaves. The wiry 3" stems produce oversized, rich violet-blue, upward-facing, starry bells. Not the easiest to grow, it requires scree conditions. Probably easier to grow in an alpine trough.
