    Design IdeasPlant generously in the beds and borders of your English cottage garden. Auslese is a more tidy, well behaved cultivar prized for its bright lime green flower sprays. Use as a groundcover, cascading over the top of containers, and in cut flower displays all summer long. This versatile perennial is wonderful planted in mass within a naturalistic setting, offering unique textural variations to wild garden compositions. Ideal for edging water gardens, stone ledges, walkways and paths.
