Alyssum is a wonderful ground cover with tiny white, pink, rose, lavender, purple and apricot flowers that release a unique fragrance.
Easy to grow from plant or seed, alyssum is a cool-season flower that can be set out in early spring when the danger of frost gone. In warm climates without frost, Alyssum can also be grown throughout the fall and winter. Most varieties will fade in the heat, but bloom again in the fall.
The sweet smelling flowers have a honey-like fragrance and are very attractive to bees, flower flies, stingless wasps, butterflies and hummingbirds.

Alyssum blooms best with at least six hours of full sun, but can tolerate partial shade. In warmer climates, plants perform best with protection from hot afternoon sun.

In the garden: plant in full sun to partial shade in average, well-draining soil.
How to plant Alyssum from seed:Broadcast seeds in flats indoors, or well-amended soil outside. Don’t cover seed, as light will aid in germination. Keep moist until germination, 7-20 days. Transplant seedlings when there are at least two sets of secondary leaves, allowing 6 inches of space between plants. For containers, place plants in high quality, well-draining potting mix and allow 6-12 inches of space between plants, depending on the variety. Water plants thoroughly.
