This plant is beautiful! Even though it "flops" when flowering, the stems lay down in a circle - they themselves are beautiful - and the rose colored blooms point up and surround the circle. Love it!

Wonderful flower color, pest and disease free in my garden. Cut back by half when plant is 2-3 inches tall or can be floppy after flowers mature.
