Lobularia maritima 'Formula Mixture'
Sweet Alyssum, Sweet Alison, Alyssum maritima
|Old-fashioned favorites, the dainty, spreading plants are covered with clusters of small, sweetly fragrant flowers. Bees love the lavender, purple, rose and white blossoms. Plant as a ground cover annual, as edging, between stepping stones, and in rock gardens, containers, and hanging baskets. Sometimes comes as part of wildflower seed packs. Invaluable companions to spring-flowering bulbs because they bloom long after others are finished. Flowers continuously in warm winter climates, and seeds itself in all areas. However, is best in cool weather. In hot summer areas, plant in partial shade for richer colors. Once flowers fade, shear lightly to promote a whole new crop of flowers and keep plant from becoming leggy.
This very popular dwarf, early flowering and fragrant edging plant is also suitable for rockeries, window boxes, garden containers and hanging baskets. Their uniform habit can get rangy over time, so remove old plants and sprinkle the empty spot with their seeds to start new shoots. Flowers range in shades from white to pink to purple.
