In early April we do have this striking groundcover, Mazus reptans 'Alba', blooming behind our gazebo. A carpeter from Asia with bright green leaves and tiny white snapdragon flowers. In German it is called: Himalaya-Löwenmäulchen weiß. This Himalayan native is invasive, but easily controlled. Showy white flowers, with a velvety texture and a deep yellow blaze on the lower petal, truly set 'Alba' apart from the lavender flowered species of Mazus and from other groundcovers. Very durable and easy to grow, with a prostrate spreading habit, trailing stems and rich mid-green leaves. Perfect among paving stones as well. The hyperlinks also show availability. This nursery even calls it a 'Classy Groundcover with interesting and unusual mini-orchid like spring blooms.
So let's have a look at this little gem: join me on a Garden Tour.
