Thanks Sgbabe. Sticki - it's a low-growing spreader (maybe 6" - 8"?) and a wonderful blue, but it IS a thug, and will stifle anything except perennial geranium. It is fairly unusual, so if you'd like a root, I'll see if I can dig one up.

thats very kind, how much shade is yours in?

No problem. It's not dense shade . . . but only gets a glimpse of sunshine in the evening. And I've just had a walk round the garden, and it's nearer 10".

Thanks Karen! Yes Sticki, the name is a mouthful - I had to "learn" it. And come to think of it, it is a SLOW spreader, so your other plants won't get strangled for a few years yet . . Will PM you.
