Aubrieta 'Variegated Red'
Rock Cress is a popular spring-flowering rock garden perennial. It forms a low cushion of evergreen leaves, literally smothered by flowers for several weeks. This selection has pale yellow to creamy-white and green variegated leaves, with deep red flowers. Excellent in the rock garden, cascading over walls, for edging or in alpine containers. This is a vegetative clone, so plants must be increased by division, best done in early autumn. Plants should be trimmed lightly immediately after blooming, to encourage a thick mounding habit. Increase by careful division in early autumn. All-green shoots may arise from time to time, and these should be immediately removed or they will take over and smother the variegated portions.
