Careful weeding required. It is easily mistaken for a weed early in the season and it does not like transplantation too much.

This plant is great for edging. It blooms profusely from early spring until late fall. Grass base stays green all winter long. Very little maintenance is required other than snipping spent flowers at plant base.
