These Aussie Natives now come in a variety of colours & now even have cultivars with larger flowers .. I have these 'original' little blue ones, which meander all thru everywhere in the gardens, esp. around cooler/damp areas & my ponds.
They are s'times used as a lawn alternative in shaded areas .. I have them also in pots & baskets as they cascade beautifully down the sides. There is also a very light fragrance!Thumb of 2015-09-05/FleuDeLis/9b917e

Really different. Ours won't cascade and they are all a different shape. Yours are lovely

TY, Vic & Sharon! Very tiny & very hard to get into focus! I'll try for some in mass colour when more flower this season .. they grow from separated roots as well & some gardeners here consider it a weed .. so sad! It makes such a good weed suppressor & natural green mulch to retain moisture, which many Aust. areas really need. :)
