It makes a nice neat rounded cushion of leaves and the flowers are held well above the greenery. The flowers are good for cutting. It is an undemanding plant to grow, and will gradually spread to form a good clump.

It is a very popular plant, and is attractive to beneficial insects including bees and butterflies.
