An open to dense trailing or matting groundcover with crinkly roundish blue-green leaves and red pea flowers on long stalks along the branches from June to October. This groundcover grows well in heavy and clay soils to sandy soils, in full sun to semi shade and tolerates light frosts and dry soils once established. It is an attractive groundcover that looks great on embankments, in handing baskets or trailing over large planters.
