Wall Rock Cress (Arabis Alpina Snow Peak) - Arabis ground cover seed produces early spring blooms and a low-maintenance ground cover. It is cold-hardy to zone 4, though in the coldest areas it will need winter mulch protection for the roots. Rock Cress ground cover plants may need to be replaced every 3 - 4 years, or it can be refreshed by digging it up and dividing the plants. Arabis Alpina has a sweet fragrance and attracts bees.
Rock Cress perennial ground cover establishes well from ground cover seeds. It works well as a ground cover for slopes. It is fairly drought tolerant once it is established.
Use Rock Cress on a ledge of rock or a stone wall. As it matures and spreads, it will cascade over the stones.
