    Aubrieta deltoidea (Purple rock cress) is native to southeastern Europe, but it is grown worldwide as an ornamental plant and it grows wild in some areas as a garden escapee. This is a small perennial herb forming carpets of green spoon-shaped to oval-shaped leaves, some of which are lobed. The showy inflorescence bears small flowers with four lavender to deep pink petals. The fruit is an inflated, hairy silique up to two centimeters long.
