Iberis sempervirens Snowsurfer™ ‘Forte’


Evergreen Candytuft

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.285.350


Evergreen Candytuft is a spring blooming favourite, often seen cascading over rocks and walls, or used as a groundcover. The dark green, evergreen foliage forms a perfect mound. This selection features masses of small white flower clusters in early spring, lasting for several weeks. Improved vigor. Prune lightly right after blooming, but otherwise leave plants alone. Drought tolerant, once established. Prefers a well-drained site, so avoid heavy clay soils that stay wet in winter. Not easily divided.
