Fleurette
Note the part about "fill in quickly". This will take over if you plant it in a more traditional flower border and has tough rhizomes that are hard to get out, so keep it where you want nothing but that! Been ripping it out of a mixed border all summer.

I agree Fleurette - better for massing than intermixing
