This low perennail creeper has tiny 3/4 inch lavender snapdragon-like flowers which bloom abundantly from spring to fall. The leaves mimic ivy and trail low along the ground helping to supress weeds. While dainty in appearance this tiny creeper takes on tough conditions from cool and poor, moist, well drained soil, to a gritty, nearly dry, wall crevice. We do not recommend fertilizer for this plant. On our first garden railroad Cymbalaria thrived in the clay soil which topped a tunnel in a shady location that was seldom watered. It does well in containers where it will spill over the edges. It loves rocks and gravelly soil and will climb and mound over them. We love it's beauty and durability. and think you will, too. Zones: 3-10.
