Jewel of the Desert Amethyst

Excellent groundcover plant in an alpine or rock garden setting. Fairly quick spreading but will not over take other plants. Best in full sun. While adaptable to most soil pH types, the plant must have excellent drainage. Sandy, gritty, scree or any predominantly mineral based soils are best. Drought tolerant making it an excellent plant for xeriscaping. Magenta flowers start in summer and bloom over a long period.
