In the spring, very small, sharply serrated leaves emerge a cool shade of blue green, a color reminiscent of the lovely Sedum sieboldii. They formed a perfectly rounded, low mound that was perfect for edging the front of the border.
As the plant aged through the season, the leaves expanded and turned lighter green, forming a short, semi-upright clump.
When late summer and early fall arrived, we understood exactly why the breeder had selected this plant for its flowers. A massive dome of bubblegum pink, star-shaped flowers completely covered the foliage followed by deeper pink seed heads later in fall.
This plant pairs perfectly with other fall bloomers like hardy garden mums, asters, and Black-Eyed Susans. Try a few in containers and at the front of the border.
Group or mass for late color in beds, borders cottage gardens and rock gardens.
Prefers well drained, non-fertile soil. Do not over mulch.
