Masses of dainty pale pink flowers with gold centers appear in late spring above a low, spreading mound of small silver-gray leaves. A superior plant for water challenged beds and borders. Ideal for erosion control; attractive in rock gardens, raised beds, or as a groundcover on sunny banks. Shares same cultural requirements as many California natives, and other dry land species from the Mediterranean. Evergreen.
