This hardy, low spreading plant inhabits rocks and banks throughout Europe and Asia, forming a showy mat of purple flowers for several weeks, in April - May.
Aubrieta plants, also known as Aubretia, are 10-15 cm (4-6 inches) in height with a spread of 30-60 cm (12-23 inches).
Combined with other spring flowering perennials like Golden Alyssum and Evergreen Candytuft, or the white Snow-in-Summer, purple Aubrieta creates a breathtaking spring display along pathway edges, rock walls and containers.
