A much more attractive pot plant than older Rock Cress, ‘Lotti Deep Rose’ forms a very uniform, tightly mounded cushion of bright green foliage that becomes completely covered in vibrant magenta pink blossoms in mid-spring. The flowers won’t fade through the day, so retailers will have long-lasting color on their benches to last through their busy spring season and gardeners will love the garden performance.
This alpine perennial is perfect for rock gardens and crevices where it will spread slowly while retaining its neat habit.
Rock Cress is easy to grow in full sun and any well-drained soil. Immediately after plants are finished blooming, shear them back to retain the compact form and to avoid "melting out".
