Now it brings us even more to love with Chill Lavender Candytuft, Iberis, with its incredibly long blooming violet flowers and fabulous foliage. It’s beautiful dark evergreen foliage is covered with clusters of lilac blossoms from spring well into summer. Its super long flowering season is a vast improvement for the Iberis genus. Its beautiful blossoms bring all kinds of flying creatures, bees, butterflies and more, along with adding charming elements to fresh cut arrangements and bouquets. But that’s not all, its gorgeous dark evergreen foliage looks fantastic year round, making it an ideal plant were you want a neat and tidy look.
This lovely little candytuft grows along the ground creating dense mounds of foliage, perfect for edging, perennial borders, and mixed beds. It is happy in sunny rock gardens and xeriscapes and will cascade gracefully over the edge of containers and retaining walls.
