Showy clusters of small, golden-yellow, starry flowers appear in summer. An excellent groundcover for dry sites, it is also well suited for the rock garden. Great for tubs and mixed containers too.

  • Virtually pest free. May be subject to fungal and bacterial crown rot and roots rots. Deer and rabbit resistant.
