Iberis umbellata 'Fairy Mix’/  Candytuft / Hardy Annual / Seeds

Iberis ‘Fairy Mix’ is an attractive pastel-coloured blend of dwarf Candytuft.  These quickly growing plants produce clusters of umbel-like flowers in pink, purple and lilac, flowering all the way through summer from June to the first frost.  They grow to about 25cm in height and look good in pots, fronts of borders and as edging plants. The plants are sweetly scented and attract bees into the garden.

Iberis prefers to grow in full sun and well drained soil. Plants are drought tolerant once established and will grow in rock gardens and rock crevices.

Pack of approx 1000 seeds.  Sow the seeds indoors in spring, or directly in the ground outside in autumn or spring.  Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.
