Arabis ferdinandi-coburgi ‘Old Gold’
Alpine Wall Cress
Photo
Zone 3 to Zone 9
Plant Shapes: Carpet
1.065.340

This variegated selection is quite different in appearance from the familiar mounding types of Wall Cress. It forms a very low carpet of rounded, waxy-looking green-and-gold streaked leaves. A choice small groundcover, also excellent for edging, in the rock garden or alpine trough. Small white flowers in spring are a bonus, although not particularly showy. Drought tolerant, once established. Great between flagstones. Plants are easily divided after blooming or in early fall. Evergreen.
