Low-growing evergreen woody species native to Greece, most often grown as a gound cover. It spreads by rooting its trailing stems. Flowers appear in whorls. Looks like it won't be reliably hardy in our garden, so I planted one in a hypertufa trough that I can shelter during winter. By late June of its first year I was enjoying its frilly leaves and trailing habit. Then it sent up a flowering stem in September, so at least I can say I saw it do its thing, even if I don't manage to overwinter it.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
