Rock Cress is a popular spring-flowering rock garden perennial that forms a low carpet of evergreen leaves, literally covered by dark violet flowers.

If growing in trays transplant when large enough to handle avoid  excessive root disturbance.

Plant Space: 15cm
Flowering: 10-12 weeks

Feed with a soluble fertiliser every two weeks for stronger plants.
