Violet blue flowers cover this mounding annual during the heat of summer in shaded to partially shaded locations with moist soils. The spent flowers drop off on their own, meaning there is no need to deadhead. This plant is insect and disease resistant. Its parent species are native to Florida, which explains their heat tolerance.
