This extremely cold-hardy perennial is native to mountain environments. It forms compact, evergreen clumps of grass-like, green foliage. From mid spring to mid summer it produces a plethora of pink ruffled blooms atop long rigid green stems. It is low maintenance and can adapt to a variety of soils. That being said it would suffer in waterlogged environments. Thriving in full sun in drier soils makes it a great choice for xeriscaping or rock gardens. It attracts bees and butterflies, and the deer usually ignore it.
