    Design IdeasThis is a highly versatile small shrub for the front of sunny beds and borders. Ideal as a single specimen or in groups of three or more. Excellent choice for late-summer color in compositions featuring lower growing, shrubbier herbs and woody perennials. Great for along white picket fences or to flesh out raised planters. Small enough to fit nicely into city gardens and town-house yards.
