Candytuft is a low growing, evergreen perennial, often used as a ground-covering plant. Did you know that it belongs to the same family as broccoli, cauliflower, and mustard? The flowers are the tell. It does not mean that candytuft is edible, but the good thing is that it is not poisonous.

Fischbeck is a compact variety of candytuft. From April until late May it produces profusion of snow white flowers composed in flattened corymbs atop 10-15 cm tall stems. Evergreen leaves are very narrow, elongated, deep green, and partially glossy. Like most mat-forming perennials this one, too, will benefit from light trimming after flowering which will help it remain compact and bushy.

Candytuft needs free-draining, neutral to alkaline soil that won't remain dry for too long. Though an alpine this plant loves moist soil, not boggy or wet, especially in winter. It prefers full sun and is very hardy if kept away from winter wet, you can count on at least -34°C (USDA zone 4), possibly a little more.
