Charming 3” conical spikes densely packed with tiny blooms from June to September. Flower buds are a deep rose color that open and fade to pale pink to white. The low-growing, deep green and leathery, elliptic- shaped leaves turn bronze red in the fall. Trailing stems form a mat that can tolerate moderate foot traffic. (Perennial,Groundcover)
