Dainty is the word most used to describe Edna Walling® Flower Girl™, which has also been described as the perfect cottage garden plant for edging pathways and in containers. With neat rounded leaves and mini bouquets of pink buds opening to creamy white from spring through summer, Flower Girl™ deserves these accolades. A lightly suckering habit adds a soil binding attribute to its other qualities. Like many cottage garden plants, Flower Girl™ makes a charming posy in a small vase. Butterflies will visit the dainty flowers regularly. Very happy in cool temperate to sub tropical climates, in well drained clay or gravelly soils, neutral to low acid pH. Suitable for inland or coastal gardens.
