Mazus Pumilio plant

Mazus Pumilio plantMazus Pumilio is a pretty diminutive herbaceous plant. When grown in peat and sand in an open situation it survives from year to year, but it will not live through the winter in cold clay soils.

Its pale green foliage is seen to advantage in carpet bedding, and its branched violet flowers, put forth from June to September, make it a desirable rock-work plant. The Mazus Pumilio may be increased by transplanting, at the end of April, the rooted stems which run under the surface of the ground.
