This cultivar is noted for its gray foliage and pure clear pink flowers with with small yellow stamens at the center. Plant in a location with good drainage in full sun to part shade with regular to infrequent summer irrigation. Shear after flowering to maintain tight growth habit and encourage rebloom. Great plant for an edging plants, a sunny border or even a small scale groundcover.
