This 1967 introduction from NY's Joel Spingarn is prized as one of the finest dwarfs for the rock garden or in troughs. The emerald green foliage with silvery markings underneath makes a tight nearly round clump (8" tall x 8" wide in 10 years) with a just sheared appearance... should appeal to you control freaks!
