Sweetly fragrant, colorful plants are star garden performers! Alluring, pastel shades of tiny flowers are massed on low, compact mounds. Fanciful along the front of your flowerbed, on the edge of a border, here and there in a rock garden, or in containers. The mild-clove-flavored petals make a colorful garnish to salads, desserts, and cold drinks. (The flower's central disk, while edible, can be bitter.)

Beautiful flowers

5 out of 5 stars Jul 11, 2019
I quit buying flower seeds from a well known company years ago because I had no luck with them growing. I decided to try Botanical Interests seeds and have had 100 percent success. I will be a long time customer.

The seeds produced healthy plants in the time expected, however, white was the only color that bloomed.

Fills in spaces with delicate beauty

These seeds did well in most places I sowed them. The plants can be delicate at first, getting mashed down by hard rain or watering but they pop back up and get stronger as they grow. I only got white flowers and just a few light light lavender ones but that could be my soil PH levels. Good for filling in spaces with nice flowers and you can eat the blooms! Tastes like broccoli!

Easy to grow and flowers quickly

This is my first year growing flower seeds and these were a delight to grow. Started in late March and they are already starting to bloom late April with a wonderful fragrance. I'm already seeing a variety of colors of pink, purple, and white. With how quickly they grow I immediately sowed some more. Thank you Botanical Interests for offering free shipping and all the wonderful seeds. I bought at least 30 packets of seeds this season and every single one so far has germinated and grown into healthy seedlings.

Hit or Miss

3 out of 5 stars May 1, 2021
I love the smell and look of alyssum and plant the seeds in my front yard every year. I sprinkled them on fresh potting soil and lightly pressed and watered about two weeks ago and they still didn't come up. I'm kinda disappointed since I love watching them bloom. I already used 3 packets so I don't want to waste more money trying again.

This is my first year growing Alyssum and the Allure Pastel Blend didn't disappoint. Germination rate was excellent and I had a nice mix of white and lavender flowers sprinkled throughout my garden. This plant grows well in the garden as well as containers whether started indoors or direct sown.

All white blossoms

I got all white blossoms but they look nice and are doing well underneath my tomatoes this fall.

These germinated well and are still blooming!

Long blooming, aromatic

I winter sowed alyssum, then transplanted it as a ground cover between hard neck garlic plants. Once the garlic was harvested, the alyssum spread across the raised garden bed, redolent with its fragrance. I cut it back twice. It performed beautifully through late October in south central PA.
