I recently planted 4 of these plants and they are absolutely beautiful. I planted them in a row in front of my hostas and the blue just draw your eyes to the area.

Arabis loves our moist, cool climate, spreading and spilling over rock gardens. In moist conditions, arabis throws air roots that transplant quite easily. They also can be grown from seed collected from pods that develope after the blooms. However, for a second bloom, cut the spent blossoms.

Spring charm is a dramatic departure from the usual white blooms. The flowers are a deep pink and quite profuse.
