Clump forming deciduous perennial with upright green stems and fleshy greyish green leaves. Dense flatted cymes of small star-shaped pink flowers, in late summer and early autumn.

Best grown in rather poor, dryish soil in full sun. Rich soils tend to promote lush grown which causes the clumps to spread open at flowering time.

Attractive to bees and butterflies.
