Description

Iberis (Candytuft)  eye-BEER-iss

Iberis (aka Candytuft) is a spring-blooming favorite for yards and containers. Profuse white flower clusters blanket the narrow, evergreen leaves throughout spring. Their fragrance will attract a wide variety of butterflies and bees. The attractive plant is fast-growing and very low-maintenance. Use the bright white flowers to highlight other colors in the spring garden!

The low-growing habit of Iberis sempervirens makes it an excellent edging plant for borders, paths or sidewalks. It looks especially stunning in rock gardens or cascading over ledges. It is also a beautiful evergreen addition in containers and window boxes. Candytuft combines beautiful with other cascading perennials such as Lithodora, Aubrieta and Helianthemum.
