Alyssum (Montanum Mountain Gold) - This is a popular rock garden perennial Alyssum for the spring garden. Alyssum Montanum establishes itself easily from flower seeds sown directly outdoors. It forms a low, trailing mound of silvery-gray leaves, and it produces a mass of bright-yellow flowers in mid to late spring. Alyssum plants benefit from a light trim after blooming to maintain a bushy habit, and they require good drainage. After sowing Alyssum seeds, maintain adequate moisture to ensure germination and establishment, but once Mountain Gold is established, it is drought tolerant. This is a perennial for every flower garden!
Alyssum Mountain Gold thrives best in dry, rocky soil and has a preference to full sun although it will tolerate light shade. Mountain Gold adds incredible color to rock gardens. Sow Alyssum flower seeds in empty crevices to make the garden come alive.
