This sturdy groundcover forms a hard flat mat with waxy, nearly succulent, teardrop-shaped leaves. It is reliably evergreen and takes on purplish tints in hot sun. Cobalt blue flowers cover the leaves from April to June. Perennial. Xeriscape.

Tips from the pros: Plants perform best in well-drained soil. Additional irrigation during the heat of summer will help keep the foliage bright and green.
