|Mature Size||Moderate growing; forms mound 10 in. tall, 36 in. wide.|

|Design Ideas||Ground-hugging, mat-like growth crowds out weeds and turns barren ground into a patchwork of colors and textures. Mass this way, or combine in rock gardens with a variety of plants for the perfect filler. Use in pots around the base of taller plants or in wide bowls and troughs.|
|Companion Plants||Salvia (Salvia); Creeping Phlox (Phlox); Coneflower (Echinacea); Blue Fescue (Festuca); Shasta Daisy (Chrysanthemum)|
|Care||Provide organically rich, moist, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, maintain evenly moist soil. Space 2 ft. to 3 ft. apart as groundcover; closer for faster coverage. Control weeds until the plants fill in. Prune after bloom period to rejuvenate.|
|Lore||This genus was named from the Greek for crane becasue seed pods of the plants resemble the long beak of that bird.|
