ALYSSUM - "Sweet Alyssum" Described.

ALYSSUM - "Sweet Alyssum" -

ALYSSUM - "Sweet Alyssum" - There must be few flower lovers who are unacquainted with the Sweet Alyssum, the white-flowered honey-scented plant that has been a favourite for long years past. The type, Alyssum marithnum, or Koeniga maritima (Cruciferce), is not a native plant, but is a garden escape in some parts "of the country and grows freely in a wild fashion where it has established itself. This is quite hardy and grows about 6 inches high. Latterly, however, a very dwarf race has been fixed, rising not more than 3 or 4 inches high, and forming a dense carpet of vegetation that quickly becomes smothered with white, sweetly-scented flowers, and therefore is a great favourite with gardeners who need a subject that will cover the ground under tall and tender plants. There are several forms of this dwarf strain, or at least a very similar form is listed under the names compactum, minimum, Little Dorrit, and Rock Alyssum.

The dwarf forms may be raised from cuttings, or propagated from seeds sown in light soil during March or April. Though so small, the plants spread freely, and should not be planted nearer together than 6 inches.
