About Alyssum Seeds - Oriental Nights

Lobularia maritima

Seed Type Open Pollinated Seed
Also known as Sweet Alison, Alyssum

At only 4 inches high, one might not think much of Alyssum Oriental Nights, but this richly colored little dwarf can come in quite handy! An excellent ground cover, Oriental Nights is perfect for borders, in between garden pavers, or that funny corner of your garden where you're just not sure what else to plant! Adaptable to full sun or partial shade, Alyssum also tends to thrive in poorer soil types.
