The “Repens” is a hardy evergreen shrub. As its tendency is to spread, it makes an excellent groundcover plant. It prefers the full sun and will reward you with amazing clusters of small, lavender-blue buds at the ends of the panicles throughout the plant. These flowers will persist throughout the spring and summer seasons.
It has glossy, deep-green leaves that are oval in shape. Although the plants are hardy, they have a shorter lifespan. To aid their longevity, prune regularly after flowering to encourage new growth and increase flowering in the following season.
They prefer soils that drain well and can tolerate some dryness, but will need to be regularly watered in dry spells. In addition, these plants prefer to be in more sheltered areas in your garden away from cold, drying winds.
They can do very well in wall-side borders and sheltered garden areas, like in a courtyard or along the fringes of a wildlife garden or cottage garden. However, it is important to remember that they are spreaders, so in order to get their full beauty, be prepared to help train them vertically or allow for sufficient space around the plant in order for it to reach its fullest growth.
