A vigorous ground cover for gardeners in a hurry.

Its foliage remains a beautiful green in both summer and winter and the flowers are also attractive. A multitude of soft pink spikes in June-July and a possible second flowering at the end of summer.
Maintenance: simply cut the floral stems with an edge trimmer or shears after flowering.

Grow in the sun or light shade in ordinary soil that can be poor and dry.
