moss verbena

The answer

Don't let the name fool you. Though you might associate moss with moist conditions, moss verbena is a hardy, low-growing flower that is ideal for planting in hot, dry climes. It is perfect to use as drought-resistant ground cover and can tolerate poor soils. It boasts finely cut dark-green leaves with blue, purple or violet flowers, and it is a yummy nectar plant for butterflies and honeybees.
