Laurentia Fluviatilis Photos
Laurentia Fluviatilis, aka Blue star creeper, is an adorable little plant that makes a low mat of round, green foliage and equally tiny light blue flowers in spring. Perfect for the rock garden or between stepping stones. Looks excellent around taller perennials and is useful planted over bulbs.
A sunken design and rustic flagstone walls ensure that gravel doesn't spill into the adjoining gardens and lawn. The smallish gravel mimics the various colors seen in the stacked stones and the fireplace to generate a pleasingly cohesive composition.
