Pink Tickseed is an attractive perennial that forms mounds of fine textured, grass like foliage that can spread via rhizomes to create a dense groundcover. It thrives in soil that is well drained and consistently moist but will tolerate medium soil moisture that is not clay soil and is well drained. The pretty little pink flowers can be deadheaded to promote a longer blooming period.
