    1. The years treat it kindly once it gets a foothold over the stone wall of a garden.

      You’ve made me think Fleetwood Mac missed a trick by not singing “You making tumbling fun”.

  1. I keep on trying to get a great pouring of Aubretia down a wall but I can’t manage it. I can grow it in clumps in the borders, I can get it to tumble out of pots but as for walls. It just refuses to make a splash like I see on some walls nearby. Keep on trying, Mari.

  2. One of those plants that are incorrectly named even in nurseries as its botanical name is aubrieta – the genus is named after Claude Aubriet, a French flower painter.

    (If you happen to be a stickler for botanical correctness 🙄 )

    I have a lovely deep red one btw.
