Plant Overview

Aubretia are wonderful alpines which form trailing mats of green foliage and are often seen clinging to walls or trailing over rocks. Masses of flowers in shades of purple-blue, cover the foliage in April and May. 

The flowers would probably be called purple-blue. They are 'bluer' than purple cascade though!

Very drought resistant when established. Excellent for rockeries, gravel gardens, containers etc.

Height and Spread: 15 x 30cm

Aubretia are named after Claude Aubriet, a French botanical painter from the 1700s. The original Aubretia plant came from the Middle East in 1710 and soon became established as a cottage garden favourite, valued for its early flowering. Many different colours and forms have since been bred from the original.

 

 

All our plants are supplied in 9cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant.
The majority of our plants are grown outdoors. This means that they follow their natural growth patterns and are ready to plant at any time of the year. If you order the plants in winter, they are likely to be dormant and died back to ground level, ready to shoot again in spring - just like the herbaceous perennials in your own garden. Very occasionally, in winter, we may indicate on the packing slip that a plant needs to be hardened off before planting out. This will be because it has just come out of a polytunnel. If you have any questions about our plants or growing methods, please feel free to drop us an email.
We grow most of what we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside. Our prices include VAT at 20%.
