Pritzelago alpina ‘Ice Cube’™
This extremely hardy groundcover grows in a mounding-spreading habit and creates a blanket of bright white flowers in early spring. It grows 4-8 inches tall and wide. This charming perennial lives up to its name of ‘Ice Cube™ with its cold hardiness. The USDA zones are 3-9, meaning that it is cold hardy to a frigid -30°!
The ferny, deep green foliage forms a soft cushion from which clusters of tiny white flowers emerge. The flowers have a look and fragrance very similar to white Alyssum. The dainty blooms attract beneficial insects as well as bees and butterflies. ‘Ice Cube’™ will do well in rock gardens, along a garden path, in containers, beds and borders. Keep soil evenly moist but not soggy. Plant in full sun to part shade along the coast and shade inland.
