Make a wonderful edging for silver-leaved or pink-flowered plants in the garden!

Specially selected to bring out the delicate color of Schoene Helene and Verbena Peach!
Easy, easy to grow! Beautiful, beautiful to see -- rich black cherry color in fine needle-like leaves that contrast and fill in between other plants in a container or in the garden! They make a wonderful edging for silver-leaved, or pink-flowered plants in the garden, too. Likes well-drained soil, smiles at heat and humidity, takes drought well, and has no pests or diseases. 6 inches tall, eventually18 inches across. They need a well-drained soil or potting medium, and, though not picky as to fertility, they do perform best if a slow release fertilizer is added to the planting medium. Allow to dry between waterings.
