Yes, it does. But, I seem to have several patches of this plant - and I rarely get flowers! The leaves do have a lovely texture, though.

Lol Sprizhenry I hadnt come across the pink one before until last year and seen it in a garden while taking my grandaughter to school .

It's not exactly great for its flowers Spritz but the foliage is softest grey and makes up for it.

Perfetly true, Linda - and easy to remove when it spread too far!
