Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

If snow came in shades of lavender and lilac, describing this new candy tuft would be easy. Imagine lavender colored snowballs edging your flower beds or enhancing your spring and early summer containers.  The flowers of Sweetie Pie begin lavender and age to a lighter shade of lavender during the summer months. The plants form perfect mounds and make the best plants for pots.
