Small, scalloped green leaves form a durable, weed smothering groundcover. Small pink flowers create a layer of color over the lush carpet of foliage. Foliage and stems develop deep burgundy tones as cooler temperatures arrive. A fine selection for spotting in rock walls and rock gardens, or containers. Semi-evergreen.
