Iberis sempervirens Tahoe is one of the earliest and brightest flowering perennials growers can produce for early spring sales. It boasts large clusters of white blooms covering its low-growing narrow evergreen foliage. In the garden, Tahoe grows 8-10 inches tall when blooming and spreads 18-24 inches wide after a couple of growing seasons. It is an early spring bloomer and flowers several weeks before many other perennials and spring bulbs in the landscape. Tahoe is very floriferous, with blooms that cover nearly all of the foliage resembling a patch of snow.
