Burgundy/ maroon pin cushion-like blooms averaging 1″ across. Flowers heavily end of May through June then sporadically until frost. Deadheading promotes repeat blooms and tidies up overall appearance. Very attractive when in bloom. Foliage presents with neat clean, silvery green basal mounds round out as the season progresses. Evaluators agreed this plant can look a little ratty at times due to its loose habit. No disease or pest problems.
