Product Description

The beloved flower of the Alpines, edelweiss is among the most iconic white flowers in popular culture. A perennial that forms a perfect low-lying carpet of foliage, edelweiss is surprisingly adaptable to American gardens. Star-shaped blooms open over herbaceous, rosemary-style foliage to add texture to the front border. Edelweiss is also perfect for rock gardens, and can withstand a little foot traffic, too. As an added benefit, the blooms give off a light, lemony scent. Very easy, drought tolerant, and low-maintenance. Prune it back after its summer flowering, and this come-again plant will enchant you with a fall show, too. Needs very well-drained soil to thrive.
