This pretty little perennial-flowering plant is found very useful for planting in the herbaceous border and among shrubs where its bright single and also double flowers are very attractive.

It grows well in any good garden soil but prefers a light sandy soil or a situation among rocks.

It is easily propagated by dividing the roots, in early Spring, or by seeds sown, to the depth of an eighth of an inch, in the Fall, where they are to bloom, and thinned to six inches apart.
