A Sparkling Edger
The profile of this variety is shorter and wider than our other Iberis offerings. Evergreen foliage is dark green and semi-glossy, making for an attractive appearance all season. White flowers spring to early summer are a stark contrast against its dark foliage. A light shearing after blooming is all that is required. The white flowers of Iberis Snow Cushion add classic elegance and a sense of serenity. Large clusters sparkle against the compact evergreen foliage. Enliven an evening garden as its crisp white blossoms will reflect the moonlight. Candy Tuft, an evergreen subshrub is deer resistant and pollinator friendly. They are topnotch for rock gardens, slopes, or a sunny pathway.

Iberis General Information

Iberis are low, evergreen mounds that flower in spring. Excellent as an edger, border or any site that has good drainage. Will bloom in part shade as well as in the sun. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

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. Needs a well-drained site.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
