Ceratostigma plumbaginoides, or Plumbago

Here is a unique ground cover!  It is late to come up in the spring, so is an excellent companion to spring bulbs.  This plant blooms in late summer and fall, and is followed by a reddish purple fall color.  Fall color is rare in perennials, so this is a bonus!

Plant in partial sun and in a well drained soil for best results.
