Ratings & Reviews

Alyssum- Mountain Gold

Loving this plant! I direct sowed along a path last winter and they germinated very well. They didn't flower much last year but maintained a constant carpet of grey-green, have survived our heavy frosts and this spring we have a carpet of gold along the paths.
