Axcent Burgundy Rockcress
Axcent Burgundy Rockcress is a popular spring-flowering perennial. It will form a low mound of medium green foliage that remains semi-evergreen through the winter. From late spring to early summer this ground cover perennial explodes with burgund flowers for several weeks. The flowers have a small yellow eye. It will grow to a height of 4" to 6" tall and 12" to 18" wide.
Use Axcent Burgundy Rockcress in a rock garden, cascading over walls, as an edging plant, massed in a perennial bed, or in containers. You can even plant this on the edge of a Woodland Garden where it will get some sunlight. Trim the plants lightly immediately after blooming, to encourage a full, thick mounding habit.
Axcent Burgundy Rockcress is deer resistant, and drought tolerant once it is established, and is also a Firewise plant. It will attract butterflies when in bloom and makes a great cut flower for filling in around longer stems in a vase.
