Design IdeasSmall low-growing perennials make excellent groundcover for the front of the perennial border or to cover up exposed legs on older shrubs. Equally suited for slopes and banks where drainage is assured. Destined for rock gardens where they nest the stones in foliage and color. Good edging to define a footpath or set of flagstone steppers. Spreading form will soften edges of raised planters and retaining walls.

Once established in the landscape, reduce frequency; continue to water container plants when soil surface becomes dry. Apply a general fertilizer in early spring.
