This herbaceous perennial has small green leaves and produces carpets of delicate light to dark pink flowers each spring. If the foliage burns back from the cold or heat, prune heavily and new foliage will regenerate from underground stems. Plant in full sun or part shade. Plants can be invasive in wetter landscapes. Flea beetles are a major pest, but are easily controlled with insecticides. Birds feast on the seeds produced after flowering.
