A dainty little alpine which will grow in most areas of the garden. Shallow rooting, it forms a creeping mat and will grow in cracks between rocks or slabs or in a container or gravel garden etc. Lovely sky-blue flowers in spring and summer and often through to autumn. Vigorous but not invasive.
Shallow rooted, which is why it grows in cracks etc.
Can be grown in a lawn among the grass for an interesting effect when it flowers.
Said to prefer partial shade but it grows well in shade and sun here.
