One of the most popular annuals in any garden, Sweet Alyssum helps to fill out a garden and add a welcoming carpet of flowers. Sweet Alyssum (Lobularia Maritima) will provide you with an endless profusion of snow white flowers, which are low lying and covered in dense blooms. Blooming all year in frost free regions and all spring/summer long in northern regions, Sweet Alyssum offers an affordable and attractive way to provide eye catching contrast on the floor of your garden beds. This plant is perfect for rock gardens, covering pathways or carpeting your wildflower meadow patch. Sweet Alyssum grows very, very fast and adds color and density in no time at all.
This long-time favorite likes partial shade to full sun and is very easy to grow and maintain. When the flowers start to fade, mow them down with the lawnmower and they will start to flower all over again! Sweet Alyssum is also ideal for containers, hanging baskets and walking paths. Seeds are packaged and germination tested for current year.
