Alyssum (Lobularia Maritima Rosie O'Day) - Nothing is sweeter growing in the xeriscape garden than Alyssum, and these flower seeds make it so easy to have lots of it! Alyssum Rosie O'Day is marked by clumps of foliage covered with numerous rich, rosy-pink, fragrant flowers, that bloom from spring through mid-autumn. Lobularia Maritima Rosie O'Day grows to approximately 6 inches tall. Even though this flowering plant is just an annual, it is a prolific re-seeder. It will drop its alyssum flower seeds at the end of the blooming season and those flower seeds often germinate the following spring.

Lobularia Maritima is an excellent choice for borders and containers. It also looks good in rock gardens and spilling over rock walls. Alyssum plants prefer well-drained soil so start the flower seeds in the right location. Soggy soil is a sure way to rot the tender roots of this drought resistant plant. Alyssum care includes lightly trimming the plants back to keep flowers blooming and to prevent the plants from being leggy.
