Evergreen in my zone 4 garden; one of the first flowers to bloom in spring.

Positive TBGDN On Feb 14, 2006, TBGDN from Macy, IN wrote:

A good plant for rock gardens and spots where other larger plants are not wanted. Forms 'mats' of evergreen foliage which spread up 18-20" across. Quite showy and very attractive. Blooms form a mass of color; especially nice when contrasted with other varieties in the subulatas. A varied assortment of colors and patterns are now commercially available.
