Although relatively unknown, Creeping Mazus is a beautiful groundcover for any sunny to partly shaded area with reasonably moist soil. Plants form a low creeping mat of green leaves, studded with small lavender-mauve flowers with delicate yellow spots. Perfect for planting between flagstones or using as a lawn substitute. Evergreen in mild winter regions. Plants are easily divided by ripping apart into pieces and replanting each small bit with roots attached. Tolerates hot, humid summers.
