Growing horizontally and forming a wide-spreading mat of foliage, Maiden pink is an excellent ground cover. This herbaceous plant reaches 4 to 8 in. tall by 15 in. wide. The leaves, evergreen and linear, look like grass, are colored medium green to bluish green. The flowering occurs during late spring or during summer. The flowers, which may almost entirely cover the foliage, are 3/4 in. wide and a scarlet red lavender with an attractive fragrance.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Maiden pink prefers full sun or partial-shade. The plant can grow well in a well drained, fertile, and moderately rich alkaline soil, and is drought tolerant. If the plant is sheared after the flowering, additional growth may occur.
