Candy Tuft or Iberis sempervirens is an amazing petite blooming ground cover. It requires well-draining soils and lots of sun, perfect for rock gardens or border plantings. This charming perennial is a great addition to any garden bed as long as it’s not very wet or shaded. It’s a relatively fast grower that is very easy to maintain. Its foliage is semi evergreen and after it blooms you can clip back any of the dead blossoms and it will maintain its green shape for the rest of the season.
