Aubretia Royal Blue heralds the arrival of spring with an incredibly eye-catching sight as waterfalls of spectacular colour cascade over the evergreen clumps of ground hugging foliage. Surprisingly, an alpine member of the Brassica family and named after Claude Aubriet, a French botanical artist and flower illustrator, Aubretia originate from southern Europe and central Asia where they grow wild in poor rocky ground, they are now a firm favourite in many British gardens. A magnificent display is produced every spring, as single, royal blue, four petalled blooms almost smother the evergreen, oval-shaped, slightly hairy, groundcover foliage until early summer each year. Aubretia Royal Blue is perfect creeping across a path, tumbling down from the top of a wall or spilling over the edge of a planter, attracting bees to your garden. Also known as Rock Cress, possibly for their popularity within rock gardens. Aubretia are low maintenance and really easy to grow, preferring dry, well-drained soil in sun or part shade reaching a height of 15cm and spreading to around 40-50cm, they are fully hardy perennials that will be enjoyed for years, growing outside with no protection required over winter.
