Rock Cress 'Royal Mix' likes well-drained soil. It's perfect for the edge of a path, the front of the border, or spilling over boulders in the rock garden.

Trim the plants back lightly after blooming to keep them compact.

The vivid color of rock cress contrasts beautifully with bulbs, flowering shrubs, and early-blooming perennials. Easy to grow from seed.
