Hearty and beautiful

I'm not sure why my local nurseries don't carry these because they are perfect for our zone. Thank goodness Monrovia ships! These stay pretty year after year and stay low to the ground. My soil is awful, mostly rock and I've got them in sun and shade and they just look fabulous. Very easy to grow.
