Alyssum (Lobularia Maritima Mix) - Alyssum plants grow well in full sun to partial shade, and they make a wonderful annual ground cover. This Lobularia Maritima seed mix offers blooms in white and shades of purple and violet. It is low-growing, branching, and has a trailing habit. Alyssum is easy to grow from flower seed, and it is dependable and versatile in its many uses. Because Lobularia Maritima has a tidy, compact growth habit it is ideal for edging the flower garden and for containers as well.
Alyssum is an old-fashioned favorite and is easily grown from Alyssum seeds. The dainty, spreading plants are covered with clusters of small, sweetly fragrant flowers. Bees love the lavender and white blossoms. Sow Lobularia flower seed directly outdoors once danger of frost has passed. Trim to keep fresh blossoms, and to start new shoots, shake flower seeds from older plants directly on the soil to encourage re-seeding.
