The Greek name for this genus, which means “to give a taste of,” only hints at the flavor of happiness it brings to our garden. The cheerful flowers are held on sturdy stems above attractive basal clumps of fuzzy leaves. Given good drainage and ample moisture, these robust perennials thrive with minimal care.
Conjuring the exquisite grace of a rose, upward-facing semidouble flowers promote ruffled, pastel primrose-yellow petals with creamy-white tips while perched on wiry 18 in. stems above dapper incised greenery. A sought-after member of Brent Horvath’s famed Cocktail Series, ‘Gimlet’ makes an amenable semievergreen addition to rockeries, butterfly gardens, perennial borders and containers, where adequately moist, well-drained soil will ensure its lush vigor.
