Design Ideas This hardy dwarf shrub is an important source of late-summer color in cottage gardens, beds and borders. Use in romantic country gardens or cutting borders.

CARE
Care Adaptable to most well-drained soils except very wet or dry. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system.
