A native of southern Europe, Sweet Alyssum has adapted to all areas of the USA and is commonly referred to as a carpet of snow flowers. It is best to sow this flower seed in early spring after the last "killing" frost to protect tender seedlings. While this variety has white blooms, there are other varieties available in pink or purple. See out list of individual species in the right column.

Sweet Alyssum is drought tolerant, heat tolerant, grows rapidly producing an endless display of fragrant blooms. It thrives in full sun to partial shade in almost any type of soil and is often found, growing wild, on roadsides, sandy and rocky areas, and waste areas. Thus Sweet Alyssum can be considered a landscaping garden flower or a wildflower! This plant is attractive to bees, butterflies, birds and other pollinators. This is a deer resistant flowering plant.
