Iberis sempervirens 'Snowflake' (25) Bare Root Plants
Common name: Evergreen Candytuft.
A blanket of pure white! Large clusters of flowers carpet the narrow, evergreen leaves from mid to late spring. This variety is a new vegetative selection which offers consistency in height and habit. An old-time favorite, candytuft is a charming plant for perennial gardens. Because of its drought tolerance, it makes a great filler for crevices in walls or between the stones of walkways. It is also effective as edging or groundcover.
Candytuft is easily grown in well-drained, alkaline soil in full sun. Plan to shear these plants back by about half right after they are finished flowering in order to promote new growth and a more compact growth habit.
