Iberis-Candytuft is an late spring-early summer blooming plant native to the Mediterranean basin.

Iberis sempervirens, Evergreen candytuft or edging candytuft is an early summer blooming perennial, with evergreen foliage, as its name shows.
Its white flowers are very showy as ground cover or cascading in a rock garden.
It prefers well drained, possibly calcareous soils and no special care in autumn.

Though not so showy as its nobler sister, the Iberis umbellata, its evergreen, glossy foliage is still very ornamental, even after its flowering period.
