(='Audelbley') Rock Cress is a popular spring-flowering rock garden perennial. It forms a low carpet of evergreen leaves, literally smothered by flowers for several weeks. This selection has single flowers of bright lavender-blue with a tiny yellow eye. Excellent in the rock garden, cascading over walls, for edging or in alpine containers. Plants should be trimmed lightly immediately after blooming, to encourage a thick mounding habit. The Axcent™ series was introduced by international breeder Syngenta Horticultural. USPP#18468. CPBRAF: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
