Aubrieta ‘Lilac’ is a stunning, low-growing perennial that produces a profusion of small, vibrant purple flowers in early to mid-spring. This tough and hardy plant is perfect for rockeries, borders, and planting in pots, and looks fantastic when planted en masse to create a carpet of color.
Best planted in well-drained soil and in full sun, this plant prefers a position with good airflow, as it can be prone to powdery mildew in damp, still conditions. It can also tolerate partial shade, although flowering may be reduced.
Aubrieta ‘Lilac’ grows to a height of around 10cm and has a spread of up to 60cm, making it an ideal plant for ground cover. It is a low-maintenance plant that does not require regular pruning, although it can benefit from being trimmed back after flowering to encourage a second flush of growth.
To encourage healthy growth and flowering, it is recommended to feed Aubrieta ‘Lilac’ with a balanced fertilizer in early spring, as well as incorporating organic matter into the soil before planting. It is also important to ensure that the plant does not dry out during periods of hot weather, as this can cause stress and reduce flowering.
