Flowers since frosts. If summer heat stops the flowering, they will rejuvenate and rebloom later in summer. The clumps are covering the grounds.

Excellent for borders, cottage gardens, pollinator gardens, containers. Can be planted in masses, small groups, as groundcovering perennial or as single plant in smaller flowers beds.
Can be combined with any border perennial, annuals, grasses and well behaved native wildflowers in full sun to partial shade, which makes it awesome universal plant.
