Iberis sempervirens ‘Tuff Candy

Evergreen Candytuft

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.285.450

Evergreen Candytuft is a spring-blooming favourite, often seen cascading over rocks and walls or used for edging. The glossy, evergreen foliage forms a perfect mound. This selection produces clusters of small white flowers in late spring to early summer. Shear 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.
