Iberis 'Fairyland Mixed'  is a useful plant for rock gardens and well-drained borders, forming dense evergreen mats which make a good background for the round heads of pink 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 Iberis 'Fairyland Mixed'  strategically along paths or to outline steps, to make the most of this valuable feature.
