I love this plant! I needed a low profile, foliage "thriller" to plant in an urn that I wanted to have an overall mounded shape. I included PW Supertunia Trailing Rose Veined, Superbells Double Chiffon, and a volunteer sweet alyssum from my garden. The foliage on this plant is as gorgeous as the surrounding flowers! I'm going to bring it inside over the winter so I can continue to enjoy the beauty.
