Groundcover Envy – Candytuft on Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day

If a groundcover is going be covering my ground, it better do more than just that.  I expect my groundcover to bloom too.  Candytuft must have gotten that message, because bloom it does. 

Let’s try that paragraph again with a capital BLOOM:

Let’s try that paragraph again with an even more emphasized BLOOM:

Ok, I give up.  No, no I don’t.  I found a way to impress upon you just how beautiful perennial candytuft is.

The candytuft has been in my garden for about 10 years.  It started out small, very small.  I have been patient, very patient.  Now, it makes quite a statement in the spring.   When it finishes blooming, it will remain an attractive groundcover for the entire season. 

The area gets some sun, some dappled shade.  It gets no attention whatsoever, and definitely qualifies as a no maintenance plant.

It also qualifies as a wonderful entry for Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day.  Looking for more inspiration?  To see what other bloggers have blooming on the 15th of every month, visit May Dreams Gardens.
