This species is low growing and grow 4 inches tall, blooms in early summer.  The flowers open in the evening and since the flowers are large one can watch as the flower open in a matter of a few minutes.  Later, four-angled seedpods are produced, which are also attractive. Deer resistant and drought tolerant once established. Nice trailing habit making it useful as a ground cover or rock garden subject. Plants can be short lived but self seed enough to keep comming back year after year.
