Short 6" - Plant 14" zone 3-9. A new introduction in the Confetti series. Candy apple red. These will thrive grown in partial shade or full sun. They are at home covering banks, cascading around rocks or over walls, and edging borders. These lush mats flower in June and July. Benefits from shearing back after first flush of blooms. Foliage is nearly evergreen, so do not cut back for winter.
