Arabis blepharophylla ‘Red Sensation’

Wall Cress

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.065.240

A very bright-coloured form of Wall Cress, nice for spring display in the rock garden or an alpine trough. This forms a low rosette of green leaves with taller stems coming from the centre that hold clusters of sweetly fragrant, deep cherry-pink flowers for several weeks. Drought tolerant once established. Requires excellent drainage, particularly in the winter months. Evergreen. This strain is said to be longer lived and easier to grow that other forms of this species.
