What I like about this plant: It is very easy to grow, needs little care, and has pretty pink-mauve flowers which appear in Fall, and sometimes Spring too. It looks good naturalized in lawns and/or meadows. It does well in rock gardens too.

What I don't like about this plant: In good growing conditions, it spreads and reproduces like crazy, to the point of becoming somewhat invasive. Therefore, grow it in a pot or container unless you want it to colonize the entire area.
