Description

Mound forming grey foliage with pink flowers.

These plants are great for poor soils that are dry in summer as they produce long taper roots that will find their own water source. We have grown these in all areas of the garden and can say that poor soils are best as richer substrate can lead to straggly plants that flower well, but are untidy. Best in the border, crevice, alpine rock garden and containers.
