About This Plant

Light shade. A lovely groundcover which forms spreading colonies in the same shaded environments where horseherb is common. It tolerates mowing, foot traffic, and poor drainage, and provides the bonus of delicate white, purple or pink blooms throughout the warm season. Available from local native growers; plant in masses.
