Buy Aubrietia 'Purple Cascade' (Cascade Series) aubreitia F1: A very free-flowering variety


  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained, preferably neutral or alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: March to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Masses of rich purple flowers create vibrant blasts of spring colour. It looks fab when allowed to tumble over the edge of a raised bed or provide ambling ground cover through an alpine bed. Flourishing in moderately fertile, well-drained, neutral or alkaline soil, this is an especially free-flowering variety.

  • Garden care:In a cold frame or unheated greenhouse, surface sow the seeds onto trays filled with good quality compost and water well. When the seedlings are large enough to handle, thin out and pot on individually. Once well established, harden off and plant them out in a sunny spot, allowing 30cm between each. Cutting the plants back hard after they have finished flowering will help keep them bushy - and may encourage a second flush of flowers.

  • Sow: February-June or September-October

  • Flowering: March-May

  • Approximate quantity: 400 seeds.

for 10 years I have had squares of gravel, slab & camomile in the front garden, this year the camomile didn't recover from the wet spring and I decided to replace it with aubretia. As I needed 150 plants I though I would try seeds never having had much success in the past. I now have squares of healthy, bushy aubretia plants waiting to show off their colour in the spring, I am looking forward to their display.

Spring flowering ground cover plant? Hello, I want to put in some small ground cover plants. There is one which comes in a dark shade of purple, and also a lighter colour I think. I have also seen it used in rockeries. It is a very common one, seen in many gardens, comes out in the spring and I thought it was called Aubretia or something like that.....Do you sell this? Thanks Jan

Jan Gorse

Hello Jan, It is called Aubretia. I have attached link. There is nothing quite like it for providing a bold blast of colour so early in the year. http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/seeds/flower-seed/aubretia-purple-cascade-cascade-series/itemno.SD30000504/ Helen Plant Doctor
