The Greek name for this genus, which means “to give a taste of,” only hints at the flavor of happiness it brings to our garden. The cheerful flowers are held on sturdy stems above basal clumps of fuzzy leaves. Given good drainage and ample moisture, these robust perennials thrive with minimal care.
Aglow with golden apricot colors, ebullient saucer-shaped flowers garnish short stocky red-infused stems above a fetching tightset green rosette. The prolific 5-petaled lucent blossoms offer a repeat bloom if judiciously dead-headed, while the rounded ripple-edged leaves remain evergreen in most climates. This well-groomed compact charmer fends off deer and rabbits, enhances Euphorbia ‘Acid Wash’ or blue-flowering Dracocephalum and makes a prismatic easy-care addition to staircases, path edges and a terra-cotta container.
