Sweet Alyssum provides a fast establishing carpet of beautiful white flowers. Alyssum is an annual which is a good reseeder. It is grown from seed in average, medium wet, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Sow seed directly in the ground starting a few weeks before the last frost date. Plants can bloom from spring to frost in mild summer climates. Alyssum provides fast establishing habitat for beneficial insects.
Sweet alyssum is one of the easiest annuals to grow. It is a mat-forming plant that produces spreading mounds of well-branched stems clad with linear, lance-shaped, gray-green leaves. Plants typically grow 3-9" tall to 12" wide. Dense clusters of sweetly fragrant, tiny, white 4-petaled flowers cover the foliage mounds often so profuse as to totally hide the foliage.
