Aubrietia 'Cascade Blue' | 10.5cm Pot
Carpet the emptier corners of your garden with lilac-blue, four petalled blooms!
Highly floriferous, and with a low-growing habit, Aubrietia is the perfect alpine for carpeting gardens with an abundance of pretty blooms. Tolerating drier growing conditions, Aubrietia works well in rockeries, gravel gardens, borders, raised beds, and even grows in crevices. 'Cascade Blue' sports lilac-blue flowers, that will enhance your garden for the months between April and May.
To maintain your Aubretia's compact shape, you should cut back after it has finished flowering. Sometimes Aubrietia can develop a shape where they cease flowering in the centre, resulting in ground cover that is empty in the middle. However, this is no cause for concern; just give it a hard prune back to restore it to its desired shape.

Our herbaceous plants are lovingly grown by our trusted nursery, based in England. Each flourishing plant will be dispatched directly to your home.
Please note, your potted plant may not display flowers as soon as it arrives. However, the 'flowering period' box (detailed above), indicates when you can expect flowers to form. Many of our herbaceous perennials also die back in winter, so will have little growth in spring, but grow quickly once sunlight hours improve.
Sustainability is one of our priorities, and as such, our perennials and alpines are delivered in environmentally friendly packaging. Aside from being recyclable, they will keep them nice and secure on their journey.
Please note: Herbaceous perennials can die back in winter, so don't be alarmed if this happens and instead look forward to spring!
Please see our below guidance on your perennial or alpine's care:
Watering: During your perennial or alpine's first growing season, you should provide them with frequent waterings. Try to also avoid wetting the foliage to reduce the risk of disease.
Deadheading: To promote a long flowering period, you should deadhead any flowers that appear spent. Simply rescind each flower at their base, taking care to not cut other parts of the plant.
Dividing: To really flourish, your perennials can be divided every three to four years. They can be divided when they begin to show less flowers, or appear less healthy in the middle. Make sure to only do so when they aren't currently flowering.
