Description and Cultural Plant Tips
A hummock-forming, spreading perennial that has cup-shaped pink to purple flowers, borne singly above deeply divided, fern-like green leaves. Can be used as a ground cover. It is covered with flowers in May and June but can start to look a little ragged by late summer. This is a perfect companion plant for any of the leggy perennials or for your roses.
Plant in well-drained soil in a sunny location for best blooms. Will grow in part shade but doesn't produce as many flowers. Trim back in early spring for more compact plants.
No serious insect or disease problems.
Master Gardener Comments
This is a lovely plant for a rock garden. Will naturalize in the right conditions. Can survive with little water but foliage looks better with some water.
