Previoulsy known as 'Snowflake'. A useful plant for rock gardens and well-drained borders, forming dense evergreen mats which make a good background for the round heads of white candytuft flowers in late spring and early summer. When not in flower, the mats make a good background for other flowers that enjoy similar growing conditions, especially rock plants like thrift, alpine pinks and early dwarf spring bulbs. They also provide structure to a rock garden in winter when there is little else to see. Plant strategically along paths or to outline steps etc to make the most of this valuable feature. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

My father gave me a clump of this from his aunt's garden where she had in growing in the early 1970's and I now have clumps of it all over my garden. It divides so easily and is very hardy. It is probably the whitest flower you'll ever see in a garden. Well worth having.
