Alpine Rock Cress Growing and Maintenance Tips

Arabis grows best in a well-drained soil. Remove spent flowers to maintain a tidy and compact habit. Drought tolerant when established. Light pruning should be done in the spring, as fall pruning does not leave enough time for plants to regenerate before the next flowering season.
