Photo: Rock Cress 'Cascade Blue'

General description

Rock Cress is a popular spring-flowering rock garden perennial. It forms a low carpet of evergreen leaves, literally smothered by flowers for several weeks. This strain has single flowers in shades of glowing blue with a tiny yellow eye.

Maintenance

Plants should be trimmed lightly immediately after blooming, to encourage a thick mounding habit.

Practical use

Nice along pathway edges, rock walls, or in alpine containers.
