PINK CANDYTUFT Iberis umbellata
This Iberis is a stunning pink-flowered version of the generally-white Candytuft! As an ornamental plant it is a spring-blooming favorite, often seen cascading over rocks and walls, or used as groundcover. The glossy evergreen foliage forms a billowing mound, with many fragrant flowers for several weeks during spring and early summer.
This plant has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.
