Purple is the predominate flower color seen in gardens, however white and pink selections are available. An easy to grow perennial has rewarding flowers for months. Nematodes are sometimes a problem. Frost will kill tops, but plants usually return the following spring if stumps and roots are mulched during the winter. Cut off cold damaged parts after first frost. Fertilize several times during the growing season. Makes a handsome warm season ground cover in flower beds. Blooms several months.
