This wonderful ground cover attracts all sorts of butterflies and bees with its honey-like fragrant blooms. Great for containers, edging, or window boxes. Full-sun or partial shade. 4" tall, and spreads 6"-8".
Annual in zones 3-6 (but re-seeds well)
Direct seed in the garden after danger of last frost has passed. Planting depth <1/8". The seed needs some light to germinate, so don't bury seeds too deeply. You can also start seeds indoor 3-6 weeks before last frost. Use trays or pots to start the seeds. Cover seeds very lightly with potting soil (or soiless) mix in trays or pots (they need some light to germinate). Water thoroughly taking care not to wash the tiny seeds away.
Place your trays or pots in a well-lighted area with an average temperature between 70F and 75F. Expect germination in 6-15 days. Transplant into small pots after 2 weeks.
Alyssum readily re-seeds itself, and is quite frost-tolerant once established.
