To know about Arabis
The name arabis owes its name to the naturist Carl Von Linne. He saw there a similarity between the Arabian desert and the sand in which this flower particularly liked.
Arabis is particularly valuable at the edge of a massif, in a planter, but also in rock gardens and embankments.
She is very much courted by our friends the bees and goes particularly well with my campanulas and the aubrietes.
As'iberis, it is called silver basket for its abundant white bloom.

The silver basket does not need watering during the summer ... a good point for water savings and for our planet!
