This low growing perennial is very similar to Iberis sempervirens, except the large flowers are pale lavender pink instead of white. It is a short shrub with rosettes of wedge shaped, medium green leaves.
Compared to the traditional Candytuft, this beefy species offers a decadent flower display. In mid spring, the whole plant disappears under an abundance of flat, light violet to pinkish white blossoms, creating a lasting mound of colour.
Hardy plant that is adaptable to most soils and positions, drought and frost resistant.
