|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 12 to 18 in. tall, spreading 24 to 26 in. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Hillside|
|Design Ideas||Plant en masse to add a wonderful drift of color to the landscape. A delightful alternative to lavender in cottage gardens or along fence lines of pickets or iron. Shows well in traditional parterres or hedge-bound planters. Casual character is equally suited for wild gardens amidst rocky outcroppings or landscape boulders. Outstanding at edges of dry stream beds with wildflowers. Excellent container specimen in unglazed clay pots.|

|Care||Easily grown in average to lean, fast-draining soils. Avoid wet, poorly drained soils. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Fertilize in early spring and prune to within several inches above the ground to promote dense growth and heavy bloom.|
