Comments: This is a popular ground cover plant that does well in places where temperatures do not drop much below freezing. In summer pink flowers with yellow stamens are an added feature. This is an excellent plant for growing in containers and raised planters where the stems can drape over the rims of containers and planters. Provide a fertile, well drained soil and fertilize during the growing season.
