2-18" - plant 8" apart. zone 6-8. Foliage remains evergreen and lusciously glossy marbled with cream. Bright yellow flowers are present all summer. Can be edible - use like watercress. Remove flowers to encourage vegetative growth. Strong attractive variegated foliage.

Allow to self sow if spreading is wanted.
