Description

Sweet alyssum flowers (Lobularia maritima syn. Alyssum maritimum) are useful in alpine rock gardens, borders, planters, hanging baskets, and dry zones. They are small plants that may get 3 to 6 inches (7.5 to 15 cm.) tall and produce clusters of tiny flowers in clumps.

This herbaceous plant in the mustard family (Brassicaeae) is commonly used as a bedding plant called alyssum or sweet alyssum and is widely available in market packs at nurseries and garden centers in the spring. The common name refers to the genus in which it was formerly classified.

Planting And Care :

  • Germination from large, easily handled seeds is rapid, and blooms should appear within a few weeks of sowing
  • When you water, allow the soil to dry somewhat between watering, then water well, then repeat the process
  • Do not water from overhead
  • Water at the base of the plant

Alyssum care:

Sunlight
  • At least 5-6 hours of preferably morning sunlight a day is ideal for plant to grow well and natural indirect bright light for the rest of the day.
Watering
  • Before water poke your finger/plain small stick into the soil to check the moisture.
  • Water when top soil (1-2 inches) feels dry to touch.
  • Water thoroughly in the summer and reduce watering in winter and rainy season.
Soil
  • The soil should be well drained and fertile, rich in organic content for growing plant.
  • Grow well in pH range of 5.5 to 7
Temperature 20 to 35 degree C
Fertilizer
  • During the main growing season (June-July) feed the plant with organic fertilizer.
