Alyssum Sweet Tiny Tim Seeds

Alyssum Sweet Tiny Tim Seeds

Lobularia maritima procumbens

Item #1153

Annual. 'Tiny Tim' is compact, always covered with flowers, and nothing adds more delight to summer days than its gentle fragrance. A wonderful ground cover, it blooms all growing season with no need to shear back at any time. Alyssum withstands drought and heat, while attracting pollinators. It is an ideal rock garden plant, and gracefully spills over edges of containers. Best grown as an annual; although perennial in zones 5 and warmer, plants can become leggy in the second year. Attracts beneficial insects.
Deer resistant.
