I have not yet seen this groundcover species that is native to the Alps of central Europe. My old woody plant teacher, Dr. Michael Dirr, wrote a paragraph about it on page 965 of his huge Manual of Woody Landscape Plants after he saw some planted in Germany. He tried to grow some in northern Georgia, but they did not take. From photos online, it looks good and seems to have thick, shiny leaves.
