Blooms twice. A fine, full display of pristine white flowers in spring on glossy evergreen plants, with a second blooming in late fall. Iberis Autumn Beauty is perfect for cascading over rock walls or edging. Lovely paired with Dicentra or Aquilegia.
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. .
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.
