Pink Iberis

iberisThis is the more familiar Candytuft, with larger florets in each flower head, but without the delightful fragrance of Iberis amara. The color of the flowers varies from white to pink to purplish and crimson, although the last color is rare, and the red-flowered varieties do not self-seed so well. Iberis umbellata Rose Flash bears deep-pink flowers. It is one of the color choices in the Iberis ‘Flash-mix’ mixture, in which lilac, white, and crimson may be discerned in addition to shades of pink.
