Maintenance Notes: 

Requires very little maintenance. Bloom is insignificant and rare. The plant can be pinched to maintain desired form.

  • We've been delighted with the strength and show and the sheer fact that the deer actually stay away from it! I plan on using more this year since it did so well and lasted through our wet winter. It's already beginning to anchor areas in our border that are bare still this spring.

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
