Aubrieta hybrida 'Axcent™ Deep Purple' USPP (Rock Cress) forms a low carpet of evergreen leaves that are covered with lavender-purple flowers for several weeks each spring. Perfect for a rock or alpine garden, and as a groundcover, it will gracefully cascade over walls and rocks. Aubrieta is reliably waterwise once established and can handle the harsh heat of summer, even in a rock garden. Its abundant flowers provide early-season pollen to awakening bees. It’s a deer resistant, low maintenance solution for easy spring color.
