Gardeners' Notes:

Positive GardenSkater On Jul 15, 2011, GardenSkater from Maryville, TN wrote:

This plant was given to me as a small division from a neighbor when I moved in. I've since divided it and given pieces to other friends. It spreads slowly and blooms profusely in mid spring and after that intermittently through the summer. With its dense dark green foliage it makes an excellent front of the border plant or ground cover because the leaves don't get higher than about 5 or 6 inches with flowers no higher than about 10 inches from the ground.
