    1. It’s a stand-out flower here in April when you’re walking past people’s houses. If it’s happy, it flowers its head off.

  1. It looks like stone steps, and they make the tumbling effect so much more fun. There’s a light heart in this — thanks!

    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”.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
