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.

Dense, fist-size cushions of small, bright green leaves eventually grow into small mats bearing clusters of white flowers on 2–3-in. stems. Some consider it among the finest rock garden plants.
