Aethionema Grandiflorum AGM
Silver foliage and clusters of pale pink fragrant flowers.
This grandiflorum specimen is grand by nature with its masses of pink flowers held on sturdy stems. With succulent silver foliage bringing interest year round for the Rock garden, crevice garden and containers. Once flowering has occurred you are left with the glorious seed heads that last for many months and are a delight to harvest when we collect the seed and split the pods. We recommend placing in a free draining area of your garden so as to not get the root system damaged through winter.
Hardiness: Fully Hardy
Lots of flowers throughout the Summer. If you leave the seed heads on in winter, with the morning frost on them they can look very attractive.
