Mazus (Mazus)

Mazus Plant Features

A Himalayan native, mazus is a natural choice for rock gardens and hillsides. This pretty, sun-loving, perennial creeper grows just 2 to 4 inches tall and produces masses of blue or white funnel-like blooms in the spring and early summer. The narrow, bright green foliage forms a tight mat that resembles a plush carpet in your garden. Use mazus as a lawn substitute or tuck it between pavers in a garden path or walkway. The flowers are also attractive to butterflies. Hardy from zones 4-9.
