Description This variety is the first of its kind, with flowers that open in the morning rather than mid-day. The mounding form gently spreads to create a tidy accent. Thrives in container plantings, spilling gently over the edges. Evergreen in mild winter climates.
Light Full sun
Watering Once established, water if very dry.
Blooms Spring to Fall
Mature Size Reaches 4 in. high, 10 in. wide.
Growth Rate Moderate
Care Thrives in average to lean, well-drained soils; best in drier, less humid climates. Water regularly during the first growing season; once established reduce frequency. Diminish watering in the fall to allow hardening off in cold winter zones; in warmer winter areas irrigate occasionally, in absence of rainfall. Fertilize sparingly in spring.
