This is a low-growing hybrid, found originally in the mountains of Eastern Europe. Plants form a low, spreading mat of fragrant dark green leaves, bearing clusters of white flowers, with a tinge of soft pink. The very long flowering period sets this apart from others, and makes it especially useful as a low groundcover or edging plant. Also worth considering in tubs or mixed containers. Fairly drought tolerant, once established. This variety should be protected from hot afternoon sun. Easily divided in spring or early fall. Evergreen.
