Lobularia maritime (Alyssum ‘Easter Basket Mix’)

No photo.

Life: Perennial

Size: 3" tall, 10" wide

Light: Full to Part Sun

Water: Average, Well-Drained

Soil: Acidic to Neutral Sand to Loam

Sweetly scented, with a fragrance reminiscent of honey, Alyssum is the perfect border plant or filler for containers in full to part sun. Growing only 3" tall, it spreads up to 10" wide, blooming from early fall through the winter and into late spring. Though it remains covered in flowers for months, our extra long growing season will necessitate some light shearing when the plant tries to set seed. Within a week or so, new buds appear, extending the blooming season into hot weather. This variety is a blend of pastel colors, including purple, deep rose, pink, lavender and white.
