Compact, rhizomatous habit and glossy, dark green, grassy leaves make this a great groundcover, edging, or excellent between stepping stones. Spikes of light lavender bell-shaped flowers are followed by small blue-black berries. Usually a very slow grower.
Prefers partial shade and well-drained soil. Can take some sun with sufficient moisture. Tolerates moderate to heavy foot traffic. Space on 4" to 6" centers.
