Is Candytuft Iberis hardy enough for Scotland



Yes Charles, you will have no problem with the hardiness of candytuft. I suspect that it would probably grow within the arctic circle!
In fact, out of interest, I have just done a web search and found it growing in a garden in Finland!

No problem in Aberdeenshire. I have it spreading happily here.

Just out of curiosity, which Candytuft is this? There are several species.

In Britain candytuft refers to the genus Iberis, Tugbrethil. There are a number of species of annuals and perennials and, as far as I know, all are hardy.
