This Candytuft brings a refinement to the popular category of perennials. Compared to 'Snowflake', this variety has bigger flowers, as well as a more uniform and tighter habit.

An old-time favorite, candytuft is a charming plant for perennial gardens. Because of its drought tolerance, it makes a great filler for crevices in walls or between the stones of walkways. It is also effective as edging or groundcover.
