One fascination of this plant is with the swirling narrow leaves that create an architectural feature. These are blue/grey and twist round forming low carpets. Round heads of lilac/pink flowers are produced in the late summer which are attractive to bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects.
It grows to about 15cm by 15cm and prefers a well drained and sunny site.
Suitable for gravel gardens, containers and troughs and edging for beds and borders.
