Evergreen, dense mat forming foliage ideal for covering larger areas of bare earth as well as moulding around rocks, pavers and other hard garden features. Purple pink flowers stud foliage for a bright burst of colour during late spring through to summer.

Cultural Care

Low maintenance and easy to grow. Medium water requirements once established - quite drought tolerant requiring only occasional long soak during extended periods of heat. Apply a slow release fertiliser in spring to encourage profuse flowering. No pruning generally required.
