  • Fragrant, Groundcover, Honey Bee, Rock Garden
  • This mat-forming perennial grows 4 to 10 inches tall and has white, 4-petaled flowers.
  • It is native to the mountains of Europe. 
  • Rockcress 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.
  • This white rock cress (Arabis Alpina) is a low-maintenance ground cover with sweet fragrance that attracts butterflies and bees.
  • 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.
  • Generally, the rock cress takes one year to get established, and then begins to spread in its second season.
  • Once established, it is pretty drought tolerant.
  • After the flowering period, you need to cut back the Arabis Alpina plant to give it good care.
  • In areas with mild winters, the leaves of this ground cover plant hold their looks into winter.
