Iberis General Information:

Iberis are low, evergreen mounds that flower in mid-spring. Excellent as an edger, border or any site that has good drainage. Will bloom in part shade as well as in the sun. Best selection for the Gulf states: zones 8,9,&10. .

Iberis Plant Care:

The flowers should be sheared off after blooming ceases, and old plants can be cut back to 4 in early spring. Division is seldom necessary since plants form a low shrub when established. Stems may root as they come in contact with the soil. These plantlets can be removed and transplanted. May benefit from winter protection with a light mulch such as pine boughs in areas where there is little snowfall or in areas prone to wind damage.
