Makes lovely ground cover DD, mine covers an area about 3ft x 4ft now as I trim it to keep it tight.

It flowered this morning, have posted a pic, did not realize it grew that big, how long did it take to reach that size?

I have had it about 7 years. It took about 3 years to take off DD but I do trim it to keep it tight together. It forms a base of twigs underneath which are be quite a thick mat. Mine is in very poor gritty soil between paving and it grows right over them.I never feed or water it, and in the spring its covered in white and yellow flowers.
