A prostrate carpet of deep blue flowers backed by fragrant foliage forms an attractive spreading groundcover that blooms almost year round for us. That, plus it is always useful in cooking makes this an asset in the garden. It is also on the edge of the contemplation garden and I think the fragrance can add to the moments spent there.
