This prostrate, evergreen plant forms a neat carpet of lance-shaped, dark green leaves - excellent for suppressing weeds in sun or partial shade. The wonderful, pure white flowers - borne over a long period from April to September - are valuable for lightening dark areas. More compact than other varieties, it's perfect where space is limited.
- Garden care: To prevent the plant from becoming invasive cut back any unwanted shoots in spring.
