Sweet alyssum

Sweet alyssum (lobularia maritima)

Sweet alyssum 'Snow Crystals - has the most wonderful, honey-like fragrance! Great for borders.

Hi Flcrazy: I took the picture in the morning that's why I thnk it came out so well! Sadly this alyssum is now gone...we've now had the first few days of 75 F weather and it couldn't take the sun...

Hi Jacque: I love the perfume as well, it also attracts bees and I actually saw one the other day! It's the first flower I fell in love with when my family and I moved to the States in 1980...that first Spring in 1981 I convinced my mother to buy some for the garden... =)
