Aethionema membranaceum

Lovely plants for the rock garden, these a dwarf shrublets with tiny blue-grey leaves. The tips of the branches carry dense head of many flowers, usually pale pink, often scented. They benefit from being cut back after flowering, when they will produce new shoots, and give neat, compact plants.
