This is a tiny plant, reaching about 2" in height. What it lacks in height, it makes up for in spread, forming a dense mat that in late spring is covered in lavender-blue flowers with yellow and white centers, like small snap dragon blossoms. But because it is such a tiny plant, it is less aggressive than many of the creeping perennials and less invasive.
Mazus is very nice in rock gardens. There's also a white variety called Mazus reptans 'Alba'
