native to the Caucusus
Showy reddish-pink star-shaped flowers
Prefers well-drained soil & full sun. Will tolerate some light shade.

Low maintenance. Rabbit, deer, drought tolerant.
2014: bought one plant from Steins for the front bed near the walkway. Great groundcover, surprised with how flashy the flowers were. Had to trim off the flower stems after they dried up, but looked great again.
2015: Bought a second plant to help fill in the front bed. Did not disappoint.
