Excellent form making compact clumps of bluey green foliage, strongly flushed purple as the summer advances. Heads of creamy yellow flowers opening from pinkish buds in late summer.

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