crucifer, cabbage family Iberis amara

White star (annual to biennial) Candytuft, Garden candytuft, Globe candytuft, Iberis

This surprising beauty morphs as it grows. The white flowers open, at first, in a plate or saucer shape. Then they grow into a candle-like inflorescence. Like coloured gems on a ring, single flower petals are circularly arranged in the centre.

Sow from March to April in seedling trays. Alternatively, sow directly to a sunny to partially shaded spot in the field. Iberis sows itself and will last several years in the garden on its own.
