Iberis Snowflake Description
Evergreen Candytuft is blanketed with floriferous blooms over a long season!
Iberis or Candytuft is a sub-shrub or woody-based perennial ground cover producing bright sparkling white blooms so closely packed they dominate a planting! Blooming in late spring-early summer. Hardy perennials with good foliage and flower power are the mainstays of the perennial border.
Low edging sun loving groundcover. Very drought tolerant and spreading nicely to fill in bare spots in the landscape. Will grow nicely between pavers! Easy to grow and adaptable, thriving in heat & humidity. Few other groundcovers rival the flower power of this spring bloomer!
One of the best edging evergreen plants. Tuck in some Hyacinths just behind the evergreen foliage. The evergreen foliage will hide fading leaves of the bulbs after the flowers are done.
Low maintenance and easy to grow, pair with other spring beauties such as Aquilegia, Peonies or Brunnera.
