Arabis androsacea

Arabis, or rock cress, is a large genus of mainly small plants, many of them very suitable for sunny, well-drained places in rock gardens. They have four petals, usually white but sometimes pink or other colours. They come from the northern hemisphere, and recent research has indicated that most species from America are genetically distinct, and the name Boechera is now recommended for these species.

Arabis androsacea is a rock cress that does indeed look a bit like an Androsace, with lots of hairy rosettes that produce a low mat. From these arise short stems, each carrying a cluster of white, four-petalled flowers. It originates from Turkey, and appreciates a cover in winter to avoid excessive wet while it is cold.
