This cultivar captures some of the best features of S. sonomensis with a distinctly less temperamental disposition. It makes broad, dense mats with bright greyish leaves, about 2 inches long. In spring and early summer it is decorated by many clusters of lavender blossoms, borne at the shoot tips. This is potentially a valuable ground cover for exposed banks and slopes, and a pretty plant for low borders, if full sun and well drained soil can be provided.
