We are very excited to offer this rare but exceedingly esoteric southeast native (Global G1 rank) arabis that has graced our rock garden for several years. Arabis georgiana can behave either as a biennial or short-lived perennial with basal green rosettes that burst forth in late March with narrow stalks of small, cardamine-like, white flowers. After blooming, the entire clump goes dormant for the summer. We have found this to grow best in gravelly or otherwise loose soils where it can reseed. Despite its rarity, Arabis georgiana has proven very easy to grow. Our offering is seed-grown from a ketona dolomite glade population in Bibb County, Alabama. We hope you'll contribute to the Nature Conservancy to aid in preserving such special sites.
