Description
With glossy green leaves and the familiar cluster of snow white flowers, often tinged with pink or purple, candytuft is another wildflower that was taken into garden centuries ago. It has a rich herbal history, and was considered a cure for rheumatism in colonial America. Candytuft is a member of the mustard family, thus the 4 petals per flower, and its use for centuries as a seasoning.
