The most floriferous, vigorous, and colorful yet
Like a banner to welcome spring, this carpet of soft pastel shades hugs the ground with gentle color and a vigorous spreading habit. Pastel Carpet is the most floriferous, vigorous, and colorful sweet alyssum yet, with soft shades of rose, pink, violet, blue, white, and creamy-yellow all over low-growing, 3-inch-tall plants.
The flowers begin just 8 to 10 weeks from early-spring sowing, and don’t let up until frost. The plants spread up to a foot wide, every inch covered in gentle color. A mass planting of Pastel Carpet is an arresting sight, and even the humblest basket or border looks like a spring paradise with this free-blooming, low-growing, miniature delight.
Plant in full sun for edging, ground cover, low beds, and containers. Trim back to get constantly-returning blooms.
