I am growing this ground cover. The picture is not very clear, Sorry about that. It has only bloomed once for me with these tiny purple round shaped flowers. Does anyone grow this and what is it? Also this year it has spread quite a bit but no flowers so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Any help will be much appreciated.

I think it is a variety of Scabiosa.

Globularia sp., likely G. cordifolia. Could you add some clear and close photos?

You are right growitall. Thank You! Here is another picture of the foliage. Do you grow this plant? It won't bloom for me it just keeps creeping around.

Blooms very well here in full sun, and for a shorter period where it's partially shaded.

Maybe it is too warm. Our summer time temp. is usually 80 to 90 with night time temp. from 65 to 75. But maybe the soil is to acidic. It seems to be happy because it is spreading. I do have it in full sun. I'll just keep my fingers crossed that it needed time to settle in???!X??? Thanks for your help.

Most plants (with the exception of a small number of genera) are able to grow in a fairly wide range of soil pH. No idea why it doesn't bloom for you then. It certainly seems to grow well enough.
