Sweet Alyssum (Lobularia Maritima Benthamii) - What wonderful, honey-scented lacy white flowers that bloom quickly from flower seeds sown outside in early spring. The dense clusters of tiny snow-white flowers bloom continuously throughout the growing season if the spent blossoms are trimmed back. A compact, rapid growing variety which is drought tolerant and heat resistant. Sweet Alyssum thrives in full sun to partial shade and in almost any soil. For the best performance, Alyssum seeds should be sown in early spring when temperatures are warming. Alyssum seedlings cannot withstand a heavy frost. In warmer climates, Sweet Alyssum flower seeds will self-sow year after year. Alyssum care includes keeping the plants well watered throughout the summer and lightly trimming the Sweet Alyssum back after blooming to tidy the plant.
