Arabis blepharophylla Spring Charm


Wall Cress

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.065.250


(='Frühlingszauber') Wall Cress is readily familiar as a widely planted rock garden or edging perennial, used for a bright spring display. Plants form a small mound of olive-green leaves, bearing masses of sweetly fragrant, deep-pink flowers for several weeks. Drought tolerant once established. These require good drainage, particularly in the winter months. Shear plants lightly after blooming in order to maintain a bushy, compact habit. Evergreen. This is a selection of a native west coast wildflower. Not a long-lived species, but plants will self seed when happy.
