White Alyssum

Clear Crystal White Alyssum has tiny, star-shaped bloom clusters that are pure white. Alyssum is a small, fast growing, annual plant that, when blooms, is covered in clusters of dainty flowers. The blooms are very fragrant and attract butterflies and bees. The Clear Crystal series is more fragrant, produces larger flowers and exhibits a stronger performance than other varieties.

In the south, Alyssum grows well in the early spring but when the heat and humidity kick in, the plants struggle and eventually die. In the north, it does well all summer long. You can see them in window boxes, flower beds and as accents in planters.
