Bright carmine-rose ball-shaped flowers bloom all spring on long lanky leafless stalks held above tight mounds of silvery evergreen grassy foliage. Makes a tidy clump in the rock garden or container, but is also great planted en masse as a groundcover.
Tolerates hot dry rocky soils and grows beautifully along the coastline or highway where few other garden plants can tolerate the high salt concentrations. Shear faded flowerheads for attractive little clumps of foliage throughout the season. Resents being moved—choose a spot near the front of your garden and leave it there.
Prefers full sun. Requires well-drained soil. Plant 8–12" apart. Light loose winter mulch recommended. Species native to mountains and coastal regions of the northern hemisphere. Z3. (2" plug stock)
