Chinese marshflower is a very pretty, low growing, creeping perennial which is semi-evergreen to evergreen. A native of the Himalayas it produces masses of blue-purple flowers with gold-spotted white centres on dense mats of deep green foliage from late spring right through the summer. An excellent edging plant for the bog or very shallow margins and beach areas it is very useful for covering exposed pond liners. Also available in its white form here.
Planting position: Very shallow pond margins up to 5cm or bog garden in full sun or partial shade
