Description / Basket of Gold Compacta Alyssum Seeds

Nothing could be easier and more rewarding for the sunny garden than the hardy, long-lived, super colorful Basket of Gold Compacta Alyssum. The yellow blooms just seem to radiate sunny warmth, entirely obscuring the grayish-green foliage as the plant spreads in beds and borders, tumbles over walls, and trails from the sides of sun-soaked hanging baskets and window boxes.

The flowers are tiny and densely set right down to the ground, on plants that reach just 6 inches tall (1 foot in bloom) but spread freely up to 18 inches within a single season. Alyssum (also called Basket of Gold and Dwarf Goldentuft) is among the most popular choices for rock gardens, ground cover, and edging, and it's easy to see why. Basket of Gold Compacta Alyssum is not fussy about soil (it may even flower more generously in poor soils), asking only full sun to bloom all spring long on vigorous plants, and it even blooms the first year from seed. A bit of drought and a lot of sun won't bother Basket of Gold Compacta Alyssum. Irresistible to butterflies and honeybees, Basket of Gold Compacta Alyssum is a gardener's helper as well as a gorgeous source of spring radiance.

Deer leave this plant alone, and Basket of Gold Compacta Alyssum needs very little maintenance to keep blooming and spreading at its best for years. Shear back Basket of Gold Compacta Alyssum after flowering for a neater look (and to encourage a second flush of blooms in late summer or early fall) and enjoy the muted colors of the dense foliage through summer and fall. Eager to reseed and naturalize in your garden, Basket of Gold Compacta Alyssum is an ever-increasing source of beauty and pleasure.
