When not in flower, the mats of foliage 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.

Iberis ‘Masterpiece’ produces unusually large white blooms with a pink centre, from spring to early autumn. Grow plants towards the centre of a sunny border, or as a central focal point of a patio container to make the most of these fantastic, long-lived flowers.
