Iberis sempervirens 'Alexander White' (Candytuft)

Thumbnail Photo

A blanket of pure white! Large clusters of flowers carpet the narrow, evergreen leaves from mid to late spring. This variety is fairly tall for the species and has the added bonus of a tendency to rebloom in the fall.

An old-time favorite, candytuft is a charming plant for perennial gardens. Because of its drought tolerance, it makes a great filler for crevices in walls or between the stones of walkways. It is also effective as edging or groundcover.
