SOLVED: Mystery Flower

Lancaster, OH(Zone 5b)

I can't remember what I planted. I didn't expect this but I really like it. Does anyone know what it is. I hope it's a perennial but it it's not, I want to know what kind of seeds to get next year. I know someone out there will know what it is!

Its Candytuft - Iberis umbellata and its an annual which produces a fair bit of seed.

It self sows so you may not have to do anything to have it again next year.I planted them once and have had them every year sense without doing a thing! :) Joy

I have this "annual" it is now 4 years old and has become a mound almost a yard across. It blooms for about 2 months and then is a lovely green the rest of the year. So far it has survived flooding, heavy frosts and light snow without being covered because who covers annuals! I started it from seed but have yet to see it self seed new plants.

Zany there are a couple of perennial Iberis species too.

Thanks for the ID and information. I don't remember planting it but that doesn't really mean anything anymore. I hope mine reseeds itself if not, now I know what to look for.
