Sweet little flowers thrive on neglect. This plant grows next to a searing sidewalk with full west hot and late evening sun. Still looks wonderful. Typical perennial though, short lived but worth it.

This plant is awesome and underutilized. And it has the most interesting flowers shaped like kitten toes. That is, if kittens have toes. I'm not sure about that. Although it wouldn't do well in high-traffic areas, a little bit of foot traffic won't hurt and it looks darn cute planted between stepping stones.
