Garden Tuesday – Candytuft

Candytuft

You can’t beat candytuft (Iberis) for bringing you more bang for your gardening buck.

Candytuft

It is an evergreen perennial that chugs along in the garden all year, but really shines in the spring. Just look at it!

It is low growing, perfect for the front of beds, or you could even use it as a ground cover, since it spreads so easily. When it is not blooming, it stays low and mounded with deep green, needle like leaves.

    Such pretty flowers! So springy! I’m beginning to forget what spring flowers look like – we still have snow here.

    It’s so showy, isn’t it? I have enjoyed it from afar as well. I didn’t know what it was called. I may have just the place for it. I hope it can take emmense amounts of sun!

    Your Candytuft photos are so lovely, and I just love the delightful name! That lovely little plant grows very well here in the PacNorthwest, and really brightens up a yard. How wonderful that they are already blooming in your neck of the woods.
