The most versatile edging plant—easy, fast, dainty and dense. Flowers continuously with a delicious fragrance.
The flowers have 4 small, blunt petals set in such a way as to give the blossom almost a squarish appearance. Alyssum plants are short and spread to form mats. The plants' narrow leaves hardly show at all when sweet alyssum is in full bloom, if the plants are packed tightly together.
The Perennial Alyssum varieties commonly come in yellow, while the Annual Alyssum varieties range in more colours such as white, pink, and purple.
