Rock garden plant. Masses of flowers with darker vein patterns. Supposedly not long-lived in the garden. It's a ground-hugger, with deep burgundy autumn foliage. Ones we had planted in an area that stayed wet in winter didn't return, so drainage appears to be essential.
||full sun-part shade
||doesn't like heat, needs good drainage
||germinate at room temperature with exposure to light

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
