Description

Alyssum - Gulf Winds - Lobularia maritima

Hardy Annual - The tiny fragrant flowers of Gulf Winds grow in soft clusters that soon form a ground-covering pastel tapestry in rose, soft pink, lilac and white. Easy to grow and blooming in just 6 - 8 weeks, Gulf Winds is perfect to carpet rose or bulb beds, unify and fill in containers, or blend and soften garden borders. The 4 - 6" plants' honey-scented perfume wafts in the air all summer long and their sweet nectar is a magnet for butterflies.

Soil & Water: Given ordinary garden soil and even moisture, Gulf Winds grows easily and blooms profusely just 6 - 8 weeks from sowing.

Planting & Growing:Sow seeds as thinly as possible in early spring in well-worked soil in a sunny spot. Cover 1/4" deep and keep evenly moist while awaiting germination. Thin or transplant carefully 3 - 4" apart when seedlings are large enough to handle, or before they become crowded so these fast-growing plants have room to mature and spread. In mild winter areas, sow Gulf Winds alyssum in the fall around bulbs, in containers or to cover bare areas. Plants overwinter to bloom all spring in a pretty carpet of pastel shades.

Harvesting & Storage: Plants stay compact and don't get rangy. After the first flushes of intense flowering are over, cut plants back halfway to re-bloom abundantly.
