Axcent® Dark Red Rock Cress

Aubrieta hybrida 'ABRZ0001' PP #24,199

An impressive display of bright red flowers nearly smothers neat, mounding gray-green foliage in spring, nearly two weeks earlier than most! This low, mat-forming perennial is perfect for grouping to create a swath of color in a rock garden or border, or as a filler between stepping stones. Thrives in patio pots. Evergreen.

Design IdeasThis dense little perennial is a favorite for spilling out of niches in old stone walls and in nooks of rock gardens. Use as an informal edging along walkways and flagstone paths. Neatens up the front of the perennial border perfectly. A great choice for year-round cover beneath roses in the cutting garden, or elsewhere.
