    Marvellous, mid-blue flowers from April to September and glossy, golden leaves with dark-green margins. This striking, variegated, evergreen plant is excellent groundcover for a small, sunny border. Introduced in 2001, the trailing stems are ideal for softening hard landscaping or for spilling over the edges of a hanging basket.

  • Garden care: To prevent the plant from becoming invasive cut back any unwanted shoots in spring.
