Very compact clumps of blue-green foliage topped in spring by unique, fragrant, deep coral double flowers with elegant white picotee edges on sturdy stems. A repeat bloomer, this colorful and tidy perennial is perfect as a border or in a container.

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Clip spent flower heads to encourage more blossoms.
