A dainty looking plant which spreads from underground stolons to form a carpet of green, and has masses of starry white to pale mauve-blue small flowers in spring and summer. Good for full sun to partial shade, and is best with regular moisture. A good plant for filling in between plants, stepping stones and paving, or as a low traffic lawn substitute. It roots at the nodes, so forms a mat of growth. The plant can be divided to propagate. Frost tender. The plant contains alkaloids, which can be poisonous to stock, but the bitter taste deters consumption. The milky sap can be a skin irritant to some.
