Arabis alp. caucasica ‘Pixie Cream’

Wall Cress

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.065.080

This is traditional Wall Cress with a twist! It forms a mounding cushion of grey-green leaves, completely smothered by sweetly fragrant creamy-yellow flowers in mid spring, each with a tiny yellow eye. Perfect for the rock garden, growing in walls or edging a sunny border. Drought tolerant once established. Requires good drainage, particularly in the winter months. Shear plants lightly after blooming in order to maintain a bushy, compact habit. Evergreen.
