Low growing, great at the front of the border with purple sage behind it. Will rebloom with a good shearing 2-3x a season. I never had it "blush" on me, maybe because our falls are so mild. Mine only lasted 2 seasons and then died, the second season was better than the first. I suspect because it is so heavy blooming that it does not make strong roots or enough foliage to survive. I planted it in the same border with "Heaven's gate" and this was a much better plant when I compare the 2.

Great looking plant and puts out a lot of blooms for most of the season. My three plants died in the winter of 2008/2009. I don't know if it was because of the especially dry conditions that winter or if it simply bloomed itself to death.

If this is the one I have, it doesn't stand upright but allows itself to be overwhelmed by its neighbors. I must remember it's there next spring so I can somehow facilitate its display!
