How to Use Alexander's White Candytuft In The Landscape

The charming white clusters of this groundcover shine in the sun. Naturalize sunny slopes and hard-to-mow areas edge perennial and mixed shrub borders.

Candytuft looks lovely rambling around your rock garden, defining walkways as a low-growing edging and filler plant.

Evergreen in warmer winters, Candytuft provides 4 season interest! Plant between crevices in rock walls and plant in your containers and planters for drifts of white spilling over edges!

#ProPlantTips For Care

Alexander's White loves the full sun! These herbaceous perennials soak up the rays in medium moisture soil and well-drained soils. Even tolerating poor quality, rocky soil.

Profuse bloomers that are also drought-tolerant, Candytufts benefit from protection from snowpack and appreciate mulch to insulate the roots from cold.

Prune back after flowering by a third to encourage rebloom in fall and new growth.

Blanket your landscape in snow-white blooms of Alexander's White Candytuft for snowdrifts in summer! Order today!
