Plant Type: Perennials
A blanket of pure white! Quarter-sized clusters of flowers carpet the narrow, evergreen leaves from mid to late spring. 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 ground cover.
Growing & Maintenance Tips:
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.
