Nothing transforms the spring garden like Candytuft, with its big clusters of white blooms covering the ground like a late snowfall. Attractive to butterflies, it begins the garden’s season of glory with a huge flourish in spring. And Tahoe? is the earliest yet, beginning several weeks before all others in mid-spring!
Winner of Europe’s top award for flowering seed (the Fleuroselect), Tahoe? is much more compact than others, saving all its energy for making bigger flower clusters and many more of them! It quickly spreads 2 feet wide in the sunny garden, though only 8 to 10 inches high. It is never invasive, which makes it a great groundcover around bulbs, its white blooms making every color around them glow more brightly.
Shear black this plant right after it blooms, and it will reward you by returning even more full and lush next year. This is a happy-go-lucky perennial, hardy from one end of the country to the other, happy in containers as well as the garden, and very easy to grow. Find a sunny place for quick, dense coverage! Zones 3-9. Pkt is 20 seeds.
