Great, slow growing, short grass that will not overtake your garden. Nice groundcover for hot and dry areas with a unique fragrance that resembles coriander. Beautiful in rock gardens and provides the background to accentuate other perennials. Easy to grow and tolerates a variety of soils, including dry, rocky soil and heavy clays. Mature seeds drop on the ground in fall, but plant does not easily self-seed. Deer tolerant.
