Plant Highlights

This versatile, low-growing evergreen lilac will reach 6'+ while staying under 2' in height. Glossy green leaves and light blue blossoms characterize this groundcover. It is ideal for mass plantings on slopes and will drape attractively over retaining walls. Providing some afternoon shade in inland sites will improve performance, but on the coast full sun is recommended.
