This Evergreen Candytuft is a compact plant that grows 12" tall and 18" wide. Its leaves are dark green, leathery and narrow. In the early spring, it exhibits clusters of pure white flowers that are borne at branch ends. This lovely perennial will have more blooms if planted in full sun but will tolerate part shade. It does best in well draining soil. Mature plants can become drought tolerant. Mulch plant well if located in cold winter climates. Plant does poorly if soil is constantly wet. May be prone to mold and mildew, slugs and snails. Looks great in containers and with rocks.
