Grows in soft looking, dense "mats" of bright green foliage and dotted with clusters of blue or pink flowers. It grows particularly well in waterfalls, streams or near moving water since the roots appreciate the oxygen from the aerated water. In warm, humid climates this plant may blacken and digress during summer. Simply "pinch off" damaged growth and it will "rebound" nicely with cooler weather. In the deep south of the U.S. it may be treated as a winter annual, much like pansies.
Native to Europe and Siberia.
