Mountain Gold Alyssum is a low growing perennial with evergreen foliage that produces a mass of bright-yellow flowers in mid to late spring.
Alyssum loves a dry, rocky soil and full sun; although it will tolerate light shade.
It will work well in rocky gardens, as flower borders or in containers.

Set the seeds on the top of soil, barely cover or press lightly into.

When seedlings germinate, need bright light 16 hours/day on and 8 hours off at night. Harden off before transplanting.
You can also start seed outdoors after the danger of frost has passed and is warm enough; the night time temperatures staying in the upper 40's or warmer.
This ground cover seed needs light to germinate.
Keep the seeds moist until germination.
If you are going to plant Alyssum Gold in the late summer, make sure you have 8 - 10 weeks before frost season begins.
After sowing Alyssum seeds, maintain adequate moisture to ensure germination and establishment.
Give them plenty of water in dry weather.
Once Mountain Gold Alyssum is established, it is drought tolerant.

Seeds arrived and I planted them and so far nothing. I've had problems with the seeds for this alyssum before. I'll keep trying.
Can't wait to see it bloom and look like the picture.
They are growing fast. Will be planting outside in another week or two when they get a bit bigger and stronger.
I am still waiting for the alyssum to flower but the plants look great!
