Comments: This mat-forming, very low growing perennial with slender, creeping, rooting stems makes a very attractive ground cover. Needs almost constant moisture, but if kept wet it will rot. Fragrant flowers in summer may pink, purple or white depending on the selection. This is a tough plant and can stand light traffic and tolerates feeding by deer and rabbits.
