These easy-to-grow mounds of white, pink, or purple, honey-scented flowers work well in containers or casual landscaping situations. Plants are low and branching, to 1 ft. high and wide, with narrow or lance-shaped leaves 1/2–2 in. long.
Crowded clusters of tiny, four-petaled flowers can bloom for months, and most self-seed. In cold-winter regions, flowers can keep coming from spring until frost; in mild climates, self-sown seedlings supply all-year bloom. Sweet alyssum seeds are sometimes included in wildflower mixes.
