Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
AUBRIETA 'Blue Beauty'
Blue Beauty Purple Rockcress, Purple Rockcress
What a fantastic blue-flowered perennial for the early border. The floriferous ‘Blue Beauty’ is a mat-forming, semi-evergreen perennial that becomes clothed in blue from late spring to early summer. Its blooming period lasts for an average of three weeks, sometimes even a month. The vivid violet-blue flowers are double and play beautifully against its deep green mats of foliage.
Sunny locations with fertile, neutral to alkaline, well-draining soil are preferred. It should be watered regularly before and after blooming but can be allowed to get a little drier later in the season. This perennial does not divide easily and is best left alone to spread and flourish. Rockcress is short-lived in gardens with hot summers but thrives in areas with cool or moderate summers. Propagate by seed or cuttings.
This true alpine looks best in sunny rock or alpine gardens, between stepping stones or cascading from chinks in stone walls.
