I use this tolerant plant as ground-cover in the front of some of my larger raised beds. It is a long bloomer (mid April to frost here in SC) with foliage that looks good all year. It handles the hot and humid summers here with ease and is happy in less than fertile soil. I trim what is left off the flower-stalks with a weed-eater in early Winter and wait for the show to begin anew next Spring.
