Gardening Tips from Fran

This is just one great plant! Very versatile. A bit too tall to be a path plant, but awesome as a ground covering perennial on slopesretaining walls and in a dry rock garden. Exceptional transitional planting between yards. Give it good drainage and it will reward you back with a happy plant.

~This can be used as a beautiful lawn alternative or meadow plant as long as it is used for ornamental purposes. It simply grows too tall to be used for fun and games.

 aka 'The STEPABLES Lady'
