Water Saving Tip:

Different areas of your landscape have different water requirements.

Shrubs need much less water than lawns and drip systems should never be scheduled on the same program with lawns.

Establish separate watering schedules for those areas.

  • Description

  • Notes

This very cute plant can be used as a groundcover, summer wildflower or a color accent plant. This groundcover reaches 1' tall and wide, covered with dense green leaves. From spring through fall, this mounding groundcover is covered with azure blue tiny flowers. It can take full sun but not reflected heat and can tolerate partial shade also. Irrigate every 3-4 weeks after the plant is established, especially during the summer. This plant usually acts as an annual.
Cold tolerant to 20 degrees F.
