This plant is not picky, it just needs to be noticed. You'd have to be pretty oblivious not to notice it starting in late April through May when its dense, ground hugging form and dark, needle-like foliage are obscured by medium blue flowers putting on a memorable show. 'Emerald Blue' loves well-drained soil, tolerates poor fertility well, and is deer resistant.
