Lobularia maritima

The best and most popular white flowering plant for edging or ground covers - pretty honey-like fragrance too! Mound shaped plants average 10-12cm (4-5") tall and spread to 30cm (12") across. A dainty but robust annual. An excellent fodder plant for bees and other pollinators too!

Approx. 1,000 seeds/pkt

How to Grow

Reliably compact & uniform. Easy to sow directly outdoors after danger of frost has passed. Plants will bloom in 6-8 weeks from sowing. For transplants, sow seed indoors at the beginning of April - press seed into the soil-less growing medium but do not cover. Germinates at 20C (70F) in 5-10 days. Grow on under lights then harden off and transplant outside at the end of May spacing plants 10cm (4") apart in the garden. Sweet alyssum can often reseed itself outside - a welcome surprise addition to any garden! Plants make their best growth in well drained soil in sunny sites where summers are cooler and in partly shaded sites (4-6 hours of sun) in hot summer areas. A gentle shearing of the plants after the first flush of blooms finish will stimulate a second flush of blooms.
