It spreads extensively, is fast growing and has slender twining stems that are studded with periwinkle blue blooms. Drape over rockeries, pathways and retaining walls. It grows best in full sun or part shade and in well-drained soil. It will tolerate hot, exposed sites and coastal salt sprays.Graham's top groundcover plants
