5cm x 100cm

Ankle-high and rather dainty, Pratia penduculata spreads across the ground like a gentle fresh green wave studded with tiny starry pale blue flowers in late summer.

Robust and evergreen, it is one of those plants that every gardener should have in their armoury.  Preferring a damp fertile soil in part shade, it will spread to fill and light up a shadier area of the garden but also happily inhabit gaps between paving slabs, softening harsh edges.  Perfect for edging a path or the nooks and crannies of a rockery, if it spreads too much, simply dig up the unwelcome sections.
