This is one of the most popular ground cover shrubs, commonly regarded as a border perennial. It is irrepressible in good fertile soil, and is better planted in poor, dry, slightly shaded conditions where all else is likely to sulk. There the creeping and arching stems will soon colonise the ground and make an attractive carpet of glossy bright green foliage, studded for much of the season with glimpses of bright blue from the large flowers. These are tubular with five spreading petals, appearing mainly in late spring, but continue intermittently until autumn. To propagate, divide plants from autumn to spring.
