A beautiful mound of white in April-May in my garden. Very hardy and easy to grow.

This is a very hardy and attractive Iberis. It's evergreen foliage is welcome in the winter. It is among the first perennials to bloom in spring and one of the last to be blooming in fall. It can get quite wide, over 2 feet, so be sure to give it plenty of room.
