    Design IdeasUse this plant as a groundcover or along the front edge of a shrub border for a field of bright green foliage. With the casual beauty of an old-fashioned flowering shrub, it is a fine alternative to weed-vulnerable, herbaceous groundcovers. Untroubled by poor soils, it is resilient and requires little or no maintenance.
