I have several colors, including fuscia, not listed
in the details. This plant is a perennial for me, surviving
with flowers encased in ice. This plant grows well in my
alkaline soil. Little care is needed.

A brilliant low filler that readily reseeds itself. I quit trimming it up and it stil does well in about three hours midday sun and minimum water.
