Iberis sempervirens 'Purity'

Candytuft

Covered with masses of small fragrant white flowers in spring, these evergreen ground covers are excellent for edging, rock gardens and containers, especially in combination with spring flowering bulbs. Slow to moderate in growth, plants form 1- to 2-foot-wide mounds. Drought-tolerant once established. The many varieties include 'Little Gem', a 6-inch-high dwarf, 'Purity', intermediate-size with large flowers, and 'Snowflake', which flowers in spring and fall. The deep green leaves have a neat, clean look. Shear plants after bloom to keep compact. Cut back hard every few years.
