Nice, tough, carefree little plant. I've had this one for probably close to 10 years and it's never gotten more than about 7" or 8" tall. Also has cute little miniature foliage of a "grass-green" color. Blooms heaviest in spring. Grows in either sun or shade - I give mine mostly shade in our searing summer heat.
