LOBULARIA Maritima (Sweet Alyssum, Dwarf Pink)
Dwarf Pink Sweet Alyssum is a favorite of gardeners, prized for its masses of fragrant flowers and used as an edging plant or addition to the border. Plants bloom quickly from seed. Plants tolerate a range of growing conditions and are easily grown. This easy-to-grow annual forms a low carpet of fragrant pink blossoms. This popular flower makes an ideal border, groundcover, or container plant because of its small habit. Even though it is an annual, it readily reseeds itself to produce the next generation of flowers.
