Low-growing pink from the Carpathian mountains. Often used in rock gardens, where the tufts formed by its blue-green linear leaves can be shown off to great effect. The fragrant, fringed flowers are held above the foliage.
||white or pink, marked with burgundy (spring-summer)
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
