|Design Ideas||Use 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.|

|Care||Very adaptable to most soils; thrives in humusy, moist, well-drained, loamy soil. Best flowering in full sun. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer in spring. Prune to shape, immediately after flowering.|
