Silvery white leaves with green edges form a lush groundcover that is topped by charming deep purple flowers in summer. Brightens shady areas, and tolerates dry shade conditions when established. Beautiful trailing from mixed containers or used to edge borders. An herbaceous perennial.
Thrives in loamy, acidic, evenly moist, well-drained soils but highly adaptable; best sheltered from direct sun. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Prune heavily and apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
