Perennial Candytuft (Iberis Sempervirens) 50 seeds (#1428)

The bright white blooms of perennial candytuft add old-fashioned charm to spring borders. Narrow, evergreen foliage of dark green covers it throughout the year and adds textural interest in winter. This crucifer hails from warm, dry locations across the Mediterranean, so it is also quite drought tolerant and tough.
Perennial candytuft is technically a subshrub, which means its stems are semi-woody and do not die back in winter. The low, mound-forming plant spreads over time slowly to form sweeps of green. In spring it offers clusters of pure white flowers in abundance. These are four-petaled, have a sweet fragrance and attract bees and butterflies. The small, brown, inconspicuous fruits that follow are called siliques and drop their seed by summer.
These are full sun plants all the way. They naturally inhabit coastal and mountainous regions that have dry, rocky or sandy calcareous soils. After flowering, it is wise to shear the plants back by 1/3 to maintain a neat appearance and keep them from self-sowing. They may also need to be divided every two to three years if a smaller plant is desired. Division should be done in fall.
This easy to grow ornamental is ideal for rock gardens, wall plantings or any open sunny perennial garden. It can also be planted as a ground cover for tough areas. There are lots of wonder cultivars that vary in size and floral characteristics.
