Candytuft

Depending on the zone that you live in Candytufts may grow back each year or you may have to treat them as annuals and replant every Spring.  Either way this spilling ground cover is a popular choice for trailing in rock gardens or cascading over walls.  Cut back the plants right after flowering to keep it tidy and attractive.  New plants are best started by seeds.
