    A speculative purchase – more for a dedicated rock garden that the large scree I have

  8. Luke Whiting (store manager)

    Thank you for taking the time to review your plants. We hope this works well for you and please be aware that it rapidly spreads in sandy soils so ideal for your large scree area and with 4cm pink flowers it is showy too. Hope this helps with your choosing of areas to place it in.
    All the best
