This mat-forming perennial grows 4 to 10 inches tall and has white, 4-petaled flowers. It is native to the mountains of Europe. Rockcress is a spring bloomer that makes an excellent ground cover, and it works well in border edges and rock gardens. It prefers dry, lean soils.

Sowing: Since this plant does not tolerate being transplanted, direct sowing is the best method. In late fall or early spring, sow the seed just below the surface in full sun or partial shade. Germination should take place within 14-21 days at 60-70 degrees F.

Growing: This plant grows in almost any soil, and does especially well in dry or poor soil. Good drainage is essential. It does not need watering unless drought conditions persist. Though it tolerates some drought, high heat and humidity will have a damaging effect on this plant. Since it spreads easily but does not become invasive, it makes an attractive native groundcover; it also grows well in rock gardens. After flowering, cut the stems back for attractive new growth. After two or three years of growing, divide the plant. This plant attracts butterflies and bees, and resists deer.

All multiple orders of the same seed are put in the same bag. For example if you order 500 beefsteak tomato seeds x 3 then 1500 seeds will be put in the same bag. We do not send out 3 individual bags with 500 in each. This goes for all seeds unless they are listings of different seeds.


If you can’t find germinating and instructions online you can find them on the item page. Our goal is to save money everywhere we can so we can pass those savings on to you.
