- Rock cress is a spring bloomer that makes an excellent ground cover, and it works well in border edges and rock gardens.
- The fragrant flowers attract honey bees. Prefers lean, well-draining soils.
- Provide some afternoon shade if grown in USDA zones 7-8.
- Foliage can be cut back after blooming to encourage a denser growth habit.

- Arabis Alpina Snow Peak will cascade beautifully over a stone wall or a rocky ledge.
- It is cold-hardy to zone 4. However, in cold areas it will need winter mulch to protect the roots.
