Plant in problem acidic soils beneath canopies of great old shade or street trees and around groves of evergreens. An elegant beauty in mixed borders and behind larger perennials along fences or walls. Bright flowers call attention to an entry or focal point. Particularly appealing at outdoor living spaces under filtered shade arbors, or plant in narrow side yards to bring flowers for viewing at window level.
