Alyssum saxatile - Basket Of Gold Wildflower Seeds

Aurinia saxatilis (Basket of Gold, Goldentuft alyssum, Golden Alyssum, Gold-dust, Golden-tuft alyssum, Golden-tuft madwort, Rock madwort; is an ornamental plant native to Asia and Europe.
This is a little, rounded, evergreen perennial that can grow from 4 to 12in high, performing a mound up to 16-20in across. the plants flowers are clear yellow, but the various cultivars produce flowers in white, cream, lemon or reach gold. Since its natural habitat is rocky, mountainous country, it is ideal for a rock garden, for dry, sloping ground, or for edging garden beds, provided the drainage is excellent. It is also ideally suited for troughs and the edges of large pots, perhaps containing a shrub. Although golden dust is a perennial, some gardeners grow is as part of an annual spring display.

Basket of Gold' is a fitting common name for this golden yellow Alyssum. This low-growing, spreading perennial produces a profuse spring bloom of bright yellow flowers that are particularly attractive in rock gardens, sprawled over rocks, or cascading down rock walls. Butterflies, bees, and birds also love these dainty wildflower clusters! After bloom, it's attractive silver-green foliage makes a wonderful ground cover.
