Do you often dream of mountains and rock gardens, while your own garden looks like a plain sheet of paper? If so, then maybe you should consider erecting a dry stone wall by yourself. All you will need for such an undertaking are some stones of various sizes, either natural or dressed, gravel and planting soil for the rock garden plants.
The Latin name for rock cress Arabis derives from the word Arabia. This is a plant for sandy, stony and infertile places, which thrives planted in rock gardens and stone walls. The genus consists of some 100 species, 4 of which are native to Lithuania. They are sand rock cress (Arabis arenosa), Arabis gerardii, tower rock cress (Arabis glabra) and hairy rock cress (Arabis hirsuta).
