Iberis provides us with a generous display of white flowers from late winter to early summer. Plants are compact and shrubby, with shiny, dark evergreen foliage; they are used as edgers, in rockeries, cascading over rocks and walls, or as groundcover. Iberis prefers moderately fertile, alkaline, well-drained, and moist soil. This plant can also tolerate drought and poor soil. Shear and shape lightly after blooming to stimulate new growth and maintain compactness. Companion plants include bergenia, tulips, dicentra, aquilegia and alyssum.
