I've had Mini Pearl for quite awhile and it has been a good front of the border plant and I like the hint of pink blush color.

Mini Pearl has been in my garden for 20 years and has been extremely hardy and a reliable bloomer. It is in a partly shaded location and it still blooms well. The height and bloom size in my garden match the stats given. It makes a nice front of the border plant in a perennial garden, and its soft colouring is easy to mix with other colours.

I grew MINI PEARL for many years. It is definitely a front of the border plant. It is a wonderful bloomer. The images posted are accurate. I would probably still grow it if it fit into my hybridizing efforts.

I used to have this and it was a lovely little plant. Unfortunately I ran out of space and needed to remove it as I wanted to add something else. When I have more space I plan to replace it.

I've had Mini Pearl for a few years. I have it in full sun and it performs well. Definitely a front of the bed plant!
