Design Ideas: Cute little thrift is an excellent rock garden plant. Its tidy form makes a fine edging and creates a good front of the border bloom. Spot into flagstone steppers and plant into gaps in rocks of waterfalls and garden pools. Plant in irregular groupings to create masses of low color in carpet bedding style.

Thrives in well-drained, loamy to sandy soils; shelter from harsh afternoon sun in hot summer regions. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system; once established, tolerates mild drought. Avoid excess winter moisture. Feed regularly throughout growing season. Deadhead to promote repeat bloom.


This plant maintains a high tolerance of copper in the soil and is valuable for revegetating areas where this mineral is problematic in the environment.
