Alyssum Sweet Allure Pastel Blend Seeds

Lobularia maritima

Item #1267

Annual. Sweetly fragrant, colorful plants are star garden performers! Fanciful, alluring, pastel shades of tiny flowers are massed on low, compact mounds. Grow them along the front of your flowerbed, the edge of a border, here and there in a rock garden, or in containers. Alyssum attracts pollinators, and is drought- and heat tolerant. Best grown as an annual; although a perennial in zones 5 and warmer, plants can become leggy in the second year.
Deer resistant.
