Iberis sempervirens ‘Golden Candy’

Golden Evergreen Candytuft

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.285.080

Evergreen Candytuft is a spring blooming favourite, often seen cascading over rocks and walls, or used as a groundcover. This intriguing selection forms a mound of chartreuse-yellow leaves, studded by clusters of small white flowers beginning in mid to late spring. Prune lightly right after blooming, but otherwise leave plants alone in fall and early spring. Drought tolerant, once established. Prefers a well-drained site, so avoid heavy clay soils that stay wet in winter. Not easily divided.
