Candytuft is a spring-blooming favourite, often seen cascading over rocks and walls, or used as a groundcover. The glossy, evergreen foliage forms a perfect mound. This improved selection produces narrow, green leaves and masses of flat clusters of large, pink flowers with small dark-pink centres, spring through fall. Thrives in poor soil, is drought tolerant once established and attracts butterflies. Excellent for the border and in containers. Prefers a well-drained site, so avoid heavy clay soils.
