White Rockcress Seeds   

Wall Rock Cress (Arabis Alpina Snow Peak) – Arabis ground cover seed produces early spring blooms and a low-maintenance ground cover. It is cold-hardy to zone 4, though in the coldest areas it will need winter mulch protection for the roots. Rock Cress ground cover plants may need to be replaced every 3 – 4 years, or it can be refreshed by digging it up and dividing the plants. Arabis Alpina has a sweet fragrance and attracts bees.

Rock Cress perennial ground cover establishes well from ground cover seeds. It works well as a ground cover for slopes. It is fairly drought tolerant once it is established. Use Rock Cress on a ledge of rock or a stone wall. As it matures and spreads, it will cascade over the stones. Rock Cress has attractive silvery-green evergreen leaves which hug the ground, about 6 – 8 inches in height, occasionally jumping up to 10 inches. In climates with mild winters, the leaves of this flowering ground cover plant hold their looks into winter. Trim back the Arabis Alpina plant after blooming to keep it neat and tidy.
