Plant as a filler in beds and borders, use in a single mass for erosion control or in poor soils. Unusual bright-green plant spreads well enough to be treated as groundcover. Just high enough to create a windscreen for exposed patios and decks. Also a good choice on top of low retaining walls, where it will spread enough to engulf themCompanion PlantsBarberry (Berberis); Rose (Rosa); Clematis (Clematis); Catmint (Nepeta); Russian Sage (Perovskia); Maiden Grass (Miscanthus)
