Masses of pure-white flowers on purple stems in late spring and early summer and fleshy, blue-green leaves. This neat, semi-prostrate evergreen shrub is an attractive groundcover plant for the front of a border in sun or part-shade and also looks good among silver-leaved plants. It is salt and pollution tolerant and therefore suitable for city or coastal gardens.
- Garden care:Needs minimal pruning. Remove misplaced or frost damaged branches in late spring.
“The centre of the plant may die off, so dig it up and plant small clumps in autumn to prevent it becoming all outer and no middle! The stems root as they grow: detach them with a clean, sharp penknife for an instant new plantlet”
