Mazus reptans Purple is a tough and durable low-growing mat that becomes covered with abundant, tiny purple flowers in early spring. Fast growing, bright green leaves creep and spread hugging the ground as it grows. Use as a lawn substitute, to fill voids in patios or tuck in between stepping stones. This versatile plant will take more than it’s share of abuse and keep on growing!
