Grown for its dense, mounded, bright gold to chartreuse green foliage than can form a soft, mossy carpet. Makes a nice groundcover in small areas and can be planted between pavers. Full sun to part shade. Small, white, star-like flowers in spring. Who knew this was in the pink family and related to Dianthus and carnations? I didn't until I wrote this description!
