Design Ideas: Finely textured foliage can soften the effects of bolder foliage plants such as hostas, and the grayish-green color of the leaves can tone down the deep greens of plumbago or vinca. Plant close to a sidewalk or patio for maximum enjoyment of the aromatic foliage. This low-grower is ideal at the front of a border; its spreading habit makes it useful as a non-invasive groundcover. As an edging plant, its gentle creeping habit can be used to soften the harsh lines of a sidewalk or driveway.

Provide well drained soil. Follow a regular watering schedule the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Water can be reduced after establishment. Prune spent flowers to prolong blooming. To keep tidy, cut back before new growth begins in spring.
