Description
This pretty Candytuft is tougher than it looks, withstanding poor soils, and exposed coastal positions. Compared to traditional Iberis, this Gibraltar Candytuft is extremely free flowering, bearing clusters of lilac blooms from May to June. Iberis gibraltarica has a low growing habit that forms evergreen clumps of linear foliage. A superb perennial for alpine gardens and rockeries or creating ground cover at the front of borders. Height: 15cm (6"). Spread: 30cm (12").

Culinary note: Both the leaves and flowers of candytuft can be eaten raw and have a taste similar to that of a sweet broccoli. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow Iberis outdoors in any moist, well drained, non-acidic soil in full sun.
More Info
Water regularly until candytuft plants are fully established. After flowering, cut back the plants to remove faded candytuft flowers and maintain a neat, compact habit.
