Used as border along part of a large raised bed garden that receives about six hours of sunlight. Grew very little the first year. Added better draining soil and trimmed it way back. Growing like crazy now. Planted a row of seven plants about two feet apart with Dahlberg Daisies in between. Makes a nice presentation.

It stays semi-evergreen here in zone 6b Virginia and it spreads nicely. The blooms are not very large or vibrant, but it is hardy and looks nice next to the other plants.
