Quick Overview:

Mazus is a low-growing ground cover which typically grows only to 2" tall. It spreads by creeping stems which root at the nodes as they go. Features narrow, bright green leaves (to 1" long) that form a dense, attractive carpet of foliage which remains green throughout the growing season and well into the fall. Foliage is evergreen in warm winter climates. Tiny, purplish-blue, tubular, 2-lipped flowers with yellow and white markings appear in small clusters in late spring to early summer.
