Scaevola “Mauve Clusters’ is one of a number of Scaevola  cultivars available but in our experience it is one of the best. It will form patches of dense green foliage with lots of blue flowers from early spring right through until frost. In the winter, it does go rather brown and unattractive but don’t worry, in the spring it will reappear. In the top picture above, the plant has put itself at the edge of a path under a low growing banksia. We also have one that has established itself in the middle of the path so we just step over it. They do like sun as you can see from the picture above which was taken at the Terra Australis Garden at the National Arboretum. Here it is growing in a very exposed position in full sun and does well. These plants do like water so you need to keep them watered during the summer months. They will also grow quite well under other plants in partial shade making them  a very useful addition to any garden. large or somall.
