Rock Cress

Rock Cress Arabis caucasia

Rock cress is a drought-tolerant, early-flowering groundcover that works well in rock gardens, as edging or in combination with early spring bulbs.

Russian Cypress

MicrobiotadecussataHeadline

Virtues: A rugged, dense evergreen shrub that makes a nice evergreen mat. Foliage turns bronze or purplish bronze in winter, for something “different.” A good alternative to mat-forming junipers.
