Glowing burnished red carpet of flowers with creamy-white centers, primarily in early summer. The subtlety of the bright color of the new blooms combined with the older, fading blossoms adds beautiful depth and complexity. Dense, succulent groundcover. Perennial. Read more here.

Tips from the pros: Wetness in the winter can cause die-back. Thrives in a variety of sites, but grows best in full sun with moderate moisture in dry summers (as in summer monsoons). Does not like bark mulch - consider gravel.
