Excellent ground cover does best in partial to full shade.  Reaching a height of 3-4 inches, this is right at home as a base plant for the shade garden plants or shrubs.  Blue-violet flowers in spring on 4-6″ spikes are a favorite of bees.  Forms a compact, dense mat that prevents weeds from poking through once established.  2-3″ oval shaped leaves form tight rosettes.  Bronze foliage is most vivid in cooler temperatures of spring and fall.  Stays ‘evergreen’ until temps drop below 15 degrees.  Foliage may show more green than bronze in very dense shade or during very hot, humid times.  Spreads by stolons, but is not invasive.

Catnip has a well earned reputation for sending cats into states euphoria.  Catnip, a member of the mint family, is a harmless “high” for felines. Although many cats will eat it, scientists say they’re reacting to the smell rather than the taste. Felines bite, chew, rub against, and roll in catnip to release the volatile oil trapped in the leaves. About 80% of adult cats react to this irresistible, intoxicating, analgesic soporific. The tendency to like or ignore catnip is inherited, and it’s true that some cats are immune to its influence.

In Chinese cooking, the flat leaves of garlic chives are often used the same way as we use regular chives in our cooking:., sprinkled over foods for extra fragrance and decoration.

Almost as rugged as grass, this groundcover can take substantial foot traffic.  It also has a deep growing tap root, so is very drought tolerant.  One plant can spread up to 24″.  It has been used as a lawn substitute in some areas.  Many people never notice it flowering because the white blossoms are so tiny and have no petals. But the foliage remains attractive, turning a bronzy red in winter. It’s great in heavy foot traffic areas because without flowers, it doesn’t attract bees.

Excellent in rock gardens and between flagstones in pathways.  Also attractive spilling over walls, out of hanging baskets, and containers.  A great substitute for Creeping Thyme.

Another name for this plant is Rupturewort.  Said by herbalists to be used for urinary problems, since it increases urea and sodium emission without increasing urine flow.
