Sweet Alyssum has been a classic of cottage gardens since Victorian times. With hundreds of tiny white flower spikes, this is a fantastic plant to tuck into the edge of beds or corners of the garden. It shines in containers placed high enough to help spread their sweet scent and attract beneficial insects.
Alyssum: Native to the Mediterranean these low growing annuals (10-16 inch tall) form amazingly sweet smelling mounds that thrive in containers and the front of garden borders. Alyssum attracts many different pollinators as well as beneficial insects that help control pests. A great ‘helper’ in the kitchen garden!
Growing Tips: Plant 10 - 12 inches apart. They tend to do best right on the edges of boarders or raised beds where they can spill out and soften the edges of gardens.
