LOBULARIA maritima 'Easter Bonnet White'( EASTER BONNET SERIES)
Easter Bonnet White Sweet Alyssum, Sweet Alyssum
Crisp white flowers smother this neat sweet alyssum all season. Members of the Easter Bonnet Series are very compact and bloom earlier from seed than others.
Sweet alyssum is a low growing herbaceous ornamental native to the Canary Islands and southern Europe. In the wild, plants behave as both annuals and short-lived perennials, but they are most commonly cultivated as annuals.
The low-growing mounded plants become covered with fine, light green foliage. They bear fragrant showy clusters of tiny flowers that cover plants when growing conditions are favorable.
Sweet alyssum is drought tolerant and adapted to seaside conditions, so it does well in sandy or gravelly soils and full sun. Popular as a bedding and container plant, it may also be used in rock gardens or along walkways where its strong, sweet fragrance may be enjoyed. It makes a superb winter annual for areas with mild climates.
