Description / Sow Effortless Collection™ Sweet Alyssum Snow Crystals Seed Tape

Fleuroselect Gold Medal winner 1988

Seed tapes simplify planting and are especially helpful when handling small seeds. So, as we look back and realize what an improvement Snow Crystals was over other sweet alyssum varieties when it arrived on the scene in 1988, we also appreciate the simplicity of planting with seed tape. Snow Crystals, takes sweet alyssum from a rather delicate annual to something tougher for the high heat and humidity of the dog days. And our Sow Effortless Collection™ of seed tapes, mats, discs, and kits means even the smallest seeds are easy to plant too.

Snow Crystals was the first tetraploid sweet alyssum, which means that it has twice the chromosomes of older (diploid) varieties. Twice the chromosomes means lots more vigor, as well as specific improvements such as much greater heat and wind tolerance, larger flower size, and longer staying power. Now, using seed tape, you can easily create edging and groundcover designs with sweet alyssum, because the tapes have pre-sown seeds embedded at proper intervals you can enjoy Snow Crystals for months, while planting them in minutes.

Snow Crystals was immediately awarded the Fleuroselect Gold Medal (an honor not often bestowed), and it has never been improved upon. How could it be, really? The white blooms are so profuse that they form a neat canopy of color over the fresh green foliage. Their scent is ultra-sweet and pleasing, and lasts all season. They open in early summer and continue through the season everywhere, and often into autumn. And they form neat plants, just a few inches high when not in bloom but reaching up to 10 inches in flower, with a width of 8 to 10 inches too. Great in containers, beds, along the driveway, in street plantings, edging the foundation, and just about everywhere they can get full sunshine, they're trouble-free and so dependable.

Sweet alyssum (also called Sweet Alison) is a great coastal planting, too. It loves the salt spray and doesn't mind sandier soils. It grows readily from seed. Now every gardener can reliably plant this sweet-scented, pretty, pert little flower in gardens and containers. Make our Sow Effortless Collection™ of Snow Crystals Seed Tape an annual addition for your sunny spaces this season.

Includes: 15 feet of seed tape
