Very attractive plant which forms low mounds of round sage green leaves which have a scalloped appearance around the edges. The very pale, almost white flowers have a network of delicate purple veins in early summer. Unfortunately can be shy to flower, but worth growing just for the foliage.

Well drained, preferably rather poor, soil in sun or part shade.
