Neutral ms_greenjeans On Nov 4, 2010, ms_greenjeans from Hopkins, MN (Zone 4a) wrote:

For some reason I haven't been able to decide on the perfect spot for this plant, so I keep moving it. In spit of that, it takes hold and grows and blooms every year. I rated it as neutral because I suspect this plant could spread more than you might want, although I haven't yet had that problem. The stems and undersides of the leaves have a nice burgundy color that is very attractive with the pale pink of the flowers.

I planted this plant 2 autumns ago and I didn't realize it would spread as it does and so it makes an excellent ground cover.
