ARABIS

Low-growing, spreading plants ideal for edgings, rock gardens, groundcovers, and pattern plantings. All have attractive year-round foliage and clusters of small white, pink, or rose-purple flowers in spring. Give good drainage.

Arabis caucasica

Native from the Mediterranean to Iran. This dependable old favorite forms a mat of leaves to 6 in. high and 1 1/2 ft. wide. White flowers almost cover the plant during the bloom season. There are also pink and variegated forms. Excellent groundcover and base planting for spring-flowering bulbs. Provide some shade in hot climates.
