Clear Crystal Purple Alyssum has tiny, star-shaped bloom clusters that range from dark to light purple. Alyssum is a small, fast-growing, annual that, when in bloom, 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, Clear Crystal Purple Alyssum grows well in the early spring. However, when the heat and humidity take over, the plant will struggle and eventually die. In the north, it performs well all summer long. You can see them in window boxes, flower beds, and as accents in planters.
