3-4" tall x 30-36" wide. What an amazing groundcover! After planting it into my garden, I've marveled how this vigorous plant grows to form a silver-gray, evergreen blanket of fine textured foliage, cascading down the slope it's plant on. It blooms in late spring-early summer with sweetly fragrant pink flowers held just above the foliage. Extremely heat and cold tolerant, it's a choice groundcover for the West, from Tucson to Boise, Denver to Reno and beyond.
