Arabis procurrens 'Variegata'

Rock Cress Bloom

£2.99

OUT OF STOCK

This is a versatile, ground-covering, evergreen perennial which bears masses of beautiful, pure white flowers held in clusters high above the foliage. It's grown for its stunning, small mid-green leaves which are splashed creamy-white in the centre and have attractive, bold creamy-white margins.

The foliage also takes on a wonderful purplish to maroon cast during the winter which helps to give it year-round appeal. Its tolerance of a wide range of soil types makes it suitable for difficult areas of the garden where other plants will not grow: rockeries, borders, alpine troughs, gravel gardens and containers are just a few situations in which it will thrive.

It makes a stunning groundcover plant when grown in front of a dark-coloured backdrop and is capable of lighting up even the dullest areas of the garden. Easy to grow and tolerant of harsh conditions

Buying Alpines from Jacksons Nurseries

At Jacksons Nurseries we lightly trim back our alpines after flowering to ensure that the plants remain neat and tidy whilst in the pot. The more tender the plant the less we cut back to help protect exposed stems from winter frost. Depending on the plant variety we will then prune back further in spring once the risk of the more severe frosts is over.

As a result, depending on the time of year you buy alpines, they may not look like images showing their ‘prime time’ in flower and looking at their best.

From late autumn onwards and dependant on variety, there may be very little visible above the soil except for a few cut back dormant leaves or stems. It is perfectly normal for dormant plants to look like this from autumn onwards, they will however burst back into life in spring.

Alpines are a group of perennials that  generally grow in rocky conditions at high altitudes.

As for all plants, soil preparation is time well spent. Dig over the area to be planted ensuring that the ground is free draining. If not then you may wish to either consider planting in a different spot or raising the level of the planting area by adding additional topsoil, well rotted garden compost and/or well rotted manure. Add ‘Fish, Blood and Bone’ fertiliser or a high potash fertiliser to encourage good root growth and development.

It’s always a good idea to plant a few of the same plant together, we recommend planting in 3’s or 5’s to provide a bold effect but allowing them plenty of room to develop.

By using this simple guide and a little time, alpines can make an absolutely spectacular difference to your garden.
