Aubretia Deltoidea

Norfolk, United Kingdom Gb

Hi! Does anyone know where I can buy this as a plant, plug or very last resort, seeds? I've not had any luck on google! Thanks, Lindsey



Almost every garden centre in Britain has a large number of Aubrieta deltoidea, either as coloured or named ones. You will pay anything from 85 pence to £1.69 for a 7cm pot depending on where you go.

Can you tell me were abouts you are in the country and I will see if there is a nursery where you can order Plants from.
If you can borrow a copy of the Rhs Plant Finder 2008 -2009 there are all the different varieties there.

Thanks! I didn't realise that all aubretia were deltoidea! Duh!!! I rang my son and he told me to try "froogle" as google and weren't giving me anything! I've now ordered several more plants that I couldn't find! Eeeeek, my bank balance, ooops!!! Thanks so much for your help!

To be very pedantic and accurate, all Aubrieta are not deltoidea, there are other species. However, unless you go to a specialist outlet the 'common' ones are all forms of deltoidea.
I gorw one called A.d. Elsa Lancaster. It is very odd shaped and not easy to keep going, but a beautiful plant when grown properly.
Chiltern do packets of mixed colour seeds.

Thanks Owdboggy! I'll let you know when they arrive! They should flower a pink colour anyway and I've planned to put them in my herb pot, to cascade down and look pweeeety!!!
