Description

Height x Spread: 15cm x 25cm

An improved form of 'Candytuft' with large flattish clusters of dainty pale pink flowers that open slowly from deeper pink buds in a long lasting floral show from spring into late summer.  Display over, 'Pink Ice' continues to provide interest through the rest of the year with its gently spreading sea of neat evergreen foliage, helping to suppress the weeds.

A recent introduction, its ability once established to tolerate a poor, free draining soil with few nutrients make it a go-to plant for a gravel or rock garden, as it can even root into crevices as it creeps along.  Perfect too for a planter or cottage garden border in the sun or partial shade, where it will attract butterflies all summer long.
