I am always looking for interesting groundcovers and this is one I love. It is Kenilworth ivy (cymbalaria muralis) and it may be considered a problem in some parts of the world because it does reseed and pop up in unexpected places. I don't think I have ever planted it, but as you can see here it has found a shady, damp retaining wall and made itself at home in Laguna. It is very dainty and the tiny purple flowers are charming. In the right spot it is a good solution.
