Sweet alyssum


I am so proud of my sweet alyssum. I planted them from seed in the spring, and they definitely flourished, even though they're in a location with terrible soil and little water. The bees just love them, especially now that there aren't many other flowers still blooming. Next year I'm going to line our whole front walk with them.

  3. Those are one of my favorite flowers, they are so pretty. Do you know they will re-seed themsleves next year, so you won't need to re-plant in that spot. Just fluff the dirt a little and they will come right back.

  5. You know how your brain takes a while to really start working when you just wake up? I saw your post come up on Google Reader and I read it as Sweet Asylum. I thought....whaaaaa? I'm glad it was about flowers. I love ALYSSUM...but it's hard to grow in hot old Arizona. :(

  6. Looking beautiful! I LOVE gardening. I just did a post yesterday on saying goodbye to my garden until next year as I just winterized it. It was sad to see it go!

  7. My mom loves alyssum because it does grow so well without help. As for me, I dislike how it will take over, and consider it more of a weed. Looks like they are perfect for your spot though. I might like alyssum more if I had a contained area for it to grow.

  8. They look beautiful! Maybe I'll try those in my front flower bed next spring. Right now it is all green ground cover and you know how I feel about that.

  10. Very Pretty! And from seed I have a chicken that runs loose and every spring she pops up with chicks and they dig through all my seeds I plant and eat them or scatter them. So to start from seed is an amazing thing at our house. Erika
