Quick Overview:

This striking low growing plant has oval leaves that are splashed with green and chartreuse. In early spring, when the foliage is emerging, it is blushed with rosy-pink. Rose shaped yellow flowers in early summer add greatly to the colorful show. Drought tolerant in sunny garden areas, Fiesta grows 8-12″ tall and will spread to 2 feet by underground runners. Deer proof.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Tolerates wide range of soils. Thrives on sandy soils in full sun. Less floriferous in part shade. Evergreen in warm winter climates. Usually dies to the ground or suffers some tip dieback in cold winter climates, but blooms on new growth and comes back nicely each spring. In areas where it does not die in winter, shear or mow plants in late winter or early spring every 2-3 years to renew and induce new growth. Spreads rapidly by underground stems and can spread aggressively in ideal growing conditions. Plant 18″ apart for use as a ground cover
