Don't expect this hard working perennial to do any pirouettes, but enjoy the performance just the same. The sparkling clump of grey-green ruffled nickel sized foliage sets off the pale violet flowers traced throughout with darker veining, borne from late spring thru early summer.. Low in stature, good for a partially shaded rock garden. Provide good drainage for this one, and perhaps some afternoon shade where summers are torrid.
