An easy-care ground hugger, candytuft gets its name from the fragrant white flower heads that cover the plants each spring. Growing just 6 to 8 inches tall, candytuft is a top pick for rock gardens, slopes, or border edges. The plant has dark green foliage that retains its color throughout the winter. For best effect, plant candytuft in drifts or clumps that slowly spread through the garden. Candytuft is also prized by butterflies and other pollinators. The plant is deer resistant, too. Hardy from zones 3-9.
