Persian Stonecress

Mounding plants with bluish-green foliage are covered with clusters of pink flowers for many weeks in late spring. This alpine plant is native to the higher elevations of Persia (modern day Iran) and is a wonderful addition to a sunny rock garden, wall garden, or planted in front of a perennial border. If planted in well-drained soil of average moisture, these tough plants are long-lived and can become semi-woody at the base.
