Rock Cress is a popular spring-flowering rock garden perennial. It forms a low carpet of evergreen leaves, literally smothered by flowers for several weeks. Prefers full sun but will tolerate some shade, especially in warmer climates. Space rock cress plants 15 to 18 inches apart and they will fill in quickly forming a mat in any open space.
This strain has single flowers in shades of deep purple to mauve, with a tiny yellow eye. Nice along pathway edges, rock walls, or in alpine containers. Plants should be trimmed lightly immediately after blooming, to encourage a thick mounding habit.
Requires Mininimal Care.
INSTRUCTIONS •Sow seeds on top of a well drained mix such as ProMix, and keep moist but not too wet. You can cover with a light covering of promix or similar. Needs light to germinate. Kept at 70° F., germination is in 14-21 days. Transplant into pots when established. Can direct sow in fall for germination with spring rains.Soil temperature should be kept high to ensure good germination. Water seedlings regularly for healthier growth – Let mature plants slightly dry out. Needs little care once established. A layer of light gravel may help keep the soil well drained. Too much moisture, humidity, or heat will damage the plant. These plants will bloom in their second season when grown from seed. After the plants finish flowering, prune them to half their size for new growth. Avoid pruning them in late fall or spring, as this can prevent blooming. Mature plants can be divided after 2-3 years of growth.
