If given conditions which allow it to keep its foliage free of moisture for much of winter, it will delight the gardener. I keep it with a top layer of stones to give quick drainage.
Love this plant! Bought it at a neighborhood plant sale and planted it in dry soil. It spreads nicely in a low-growing green carpet and has really pretty purple flowers all Summer. I've dug pieces up and planted them in other difficult places, like the hot, dry area by the mailbox. Not sure if it's supposed to go dormant in the Winter but it stayed green all Winter of 2007 in Atlanta, GA. Flowers began appearing the first week of April.
