- n. Plural form of candytuft.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Such spring-flowering perennials as the white arabis, herbaceous candytufts, aubretias, primulas, and polyanthuses, should now be placed in situations where it is desired for them to flower.
For still less robustness, good mass-displays can be made with the following: alyssums and candytufts for whites; phloxes for whites and various pinks and reds; lobelias and browallias for blues; pinks for whites and various shades of pink; stocks for whites and reds; wallflowers for brown-yellows; verbenas for many colors.
The storm-nursed little candytufts and alyssums that have come up out-of-doors on their own responsibility, will fight the frost and live it through; but your thin-skinned house seedlings are quite another matter.
November's darkening skies inspire gardeners to set out colorful and full-grown winter-booming cyclamen, chrysanthemums, calendulas, candytufts, cinerarias, dianthus, English and fairy primroses, Iceland poppies and pansies.
