Aethionema schistosum - Fragrant Persian Stonecress

One of my favorite perennials! Fragrant Persian Stonecress forms a symetrical mound of blue-green leaves covered with fragrant, pale pink flowers in spring. The color and fragrance remind me of cotton candy.

Aethionema schistosum is a wonderful rock garden plant. It tolerates drought and poor soil. It needs well-drained soil to overwinter. Also known as Turkish Stonecress. Hardy in zones 4-8.

height 10", width 15"

Sowing Aethionema schistosum Seeds:
