Aurinia saxatillis 'Compacta'

Compact Basket-of-Gold, Gold Dust Basket-of-Gold, Alyssum saxatile

This excellent rock garden perennial forms mounds of gray-green foliage from which intense yellow flowers rise. Also used in the front of borders or on top of walls. Full sun, good drainage and lean soil promote long life and compact growth. Starts easily by self-sowing, seed, cuttings or division. Prune lightly after bloom to encourage dense growth. Protect from afternoon sun in hot southern climates. Hot, humid weather or extremely cold winters can kill the plant.
