Homeowner Growing Tips: Grow in full sun to partial shade. Prefers moist, well-drained, neutral to alkaline soils with poor to moderate fertility. Trim tips lightly after flowering to deadhead; this may promote continued blooming. To rejuvenate, shear this plant back to about half its height as soon as flowers fade, to promote new growth and keep a compact habit.

  • Arrived on time and in great condition

    I ordered 5 'Alexander's White' to help fill in some spots on a slope in my front yard. They arrived in great shape, were of a size to work immediately in my landscape and have adapted well to our Virginia condition. First time I've ordered plants this size, but will keep Romencegardens on my radar for future plant needs.

  • doing well

    My plants were shipped across country to Oregon in two boxes. the only hitch was that the shipping company decided to put the boxes on different trucks. Despite that the plants all arrived in good condition, due largely to the care taken in preparing them for shipping at Romence. The Iberis that arrived in the second box were a little "tired" on arrival, but with normal care all of the plants perked up and have grown well this season.
