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 slopes, retaining 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.
