Pastel Carpet Sweet Alyssum Seeds

(P) Pkt of 100 seeds
Item #00063-PK-P1


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.

Few Pastels - mostly white

This shopper rated the product 3 out of 5 stars

Good germination rate, rapid growth plants became full quickly. Very fragrant. 90% of the plants produced white flowers, with the remaining a week pastel. Good plants with disappointing color.

Nice plants, but not that colorful

This shopper rated the product 3 out of 5 stars

I got nearly 100% germination rate. I kept around 40 plants, which turned out to have mostly white flowers, just a few pinks and only one plant had purple flowers. Still, they grew compact and covered in honey-scented blooms in spite of the heat (over 85 °F).
