Zones: 3 to 10
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.
Plant pictured above is growing in a planter that receives full sun in the morning and early afternoon with shade in the hotter part of the afternoon and evening.
