Aubrieta hybrida Axcent™ Lilac

Rock Cress

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.090.520

(='Audelip') Rock Cress is a popular spring-flowering rock garden perennial. It forms a low carpet of evergreen leaves, literally smothered by flowers for several weeks. This selection has single flowers of bright bright magenta-purple with a tiny yellow eye. Excellent in the rock garden, cascading over walls, for edging or in alpine containers. Plants should be trimmed lightly immediately after blooming, to encourage a thick mounding habit. The Axcent™ series was introduced by international breeder Syngenta Horticultural. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
