Alyssum (Lobularia Maritima Oriental Nights) - Alyssum plants make a great addition to pots, containers, and baskets. Grow as much as you need from Alyssum seeds! The flower seed can be started either indoors before frost season is over or directly outside once temperatures have warmed up. Oriental Nights Alyssum has clumps of foliage that are loaded with violet-purple flowers. This Alyssum plant grown from seeds grows to 4 inches in height, and the flowers have a lovely honey fragrance. The height and color of this variety make it perfect for accenting other ornamentals. Alyssum care should include a light trim to encourage more blooming and keeping the soil moist but not saturated.
