Product Details

Nothing adds more delight to summer days than the gentle fragrance of sweet alyssum. 'Tiny Tim' is compact and always covered with flowers. A wonderful ground cover, it blooms all growing season with no need to shear back at any time. Alyssum withstands drought and heat, while attracting pollinators. It is an ideal rock garden plant, and gracefully spills over edges of containers. Edible flowers have a mild, grassy/mustardy flavor; the clusters make a charming garnish to salads and desserts.
