Masses of scented white flowers are the head turning feature of this RHS AGM Candytuft variety, Iberis Sempervirens. It's an evergreen hardy perennial that will feel at home in poor soils in rockeries, on the tops of walls or the front of borders and is a reliable ground cover plant. Candytuft is attractive to pollinating insects too. Height 30cm (12"). Spread 50cm (20").

Culinary information: Both the leaves and flowers of candytuft can be eaten raw and have a taste similar to that of a sweet broccoli. For more details about edible flowers click here.
