You will not believe the delicious and honey like aroma that these tiny flowers put out! They look absolutely darling as a garden border among larger and more colorful flowers. I can never help myself and always stop to smell them when I walk by the garden.

These are very pretty, and my chickens love nibbling on the flowers. It's not even a problem as it can be with other flowers, because there are so many tiny petals the four of them can't make a dent! The alyssum creeps nicely around the area it is planted in and I'll be planting more in the spring. Good ground flower for a bed.

I planted Tiny Tim alyssum seeds in September of 2018. They came up and bloomed until around mid-March. They lasted through several nights in the 20F or lower range. And I think the seeds were about 2 years older or older.
