Comments about American Meadows Sweet Alyssum Seeds:
We have a long fence line of alternating arborvitae and roses. Planted the sweet alyssum between and in front of the shrubs. The plants came up quickly, have been showing their stuff all summer and are still blooming and in perfect shape in the last half of October. Very, very pleased with quality of the seeds.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not your typical sweet alyssum
About Me Avid Gardener
They smell wonderful and grew profusely. They were not as neat and tidy looking as the usual garden shop variety. Would not recommend for a manicured looking landscape. Great for fragrance and filling in an area.
haha! love the flourish!

Nice, like sprinkles on a frosted cake
from Fishersville, VA
About Me Casual Hobbyist
I agree with other reviewers who give this product a high rating. It is one of the easiest I have used. Low effort simply requires sprinkling seeds multiple times throughout the growing season for extended bloom. I use this and American Meadows' baby's breath seeds in the same way – to apply the final touches, and "fluff" to the garden, like the frosting and sprinkles used to finish decorating a cake. Just sprinkle the seeds in garden areas not occupied by other flowers. They germinate readily, grow, and bloom quickly. This plant appears to be delicate, but it is tough enough to withstand summer heat. I sprinkled seeds along the edge of a garden that lines my paved driveway, and it seemed to crawl right out onto the hot pavement, in full sun. I was amazed that the summer heat magnified by the black pavement did not kill it. Yet, it seemed quite happy, and bloomed profusely. It grows low to the ground. I have never knelt and bent over to smell it. Nor have I plucked it from the ground to smell it. I cannot therefore comment on its fragrance that other reviewers enjoy. I will need to give sweet alyssum a sniff when it blooms this year so that I get to enjoy the fragrance as well as the visual appeal of these sprinkles on our frosted garden cake!
Consistently bloom well, long-lasting
from Princeton, NJi
Each year I've planted these with other wildflower varieties, and each year these remain in bloom for the longest span.
By Larkspur Fan
from Lubbock, TX
I live in Zone 7 (Texas) where it is very dry and hot. Sweet Alyssum seeds perform like a charm here, provided you water the seeds to get them to germinate. From then on, once or twice a week watering is all that's needed. The germination rate is great, and blooms follow about a month or two later. And what a sweet fragrance!!

Delicate re-seeding wonders
from New Orleans, LA
For years I tried to grow alyssum from pots at chain stores. They would always die in the heat. But these little seeds are so dependable. In Nov/Dec I sprinkle them around... toss some leaves or a lite coating of soil or nothing on top and then in the spring they bloom very reliably. If you cut the tops off and toss them where you want next years crop to come up you can spread them around the garden. These delicate little things grow reliably in the green space between the sidewalk and the street. They go to seed when the heat sets in only to bloom again the next year. I like them so much I bought more this year.
from Aguanga, CA
Alyssum is always dependable. It can be relied to germinate, bloom, and spread from year to year.
Sweet scented filler
from Acworth, GA
Just sprinkle some seeds on bare soil and in a month you'll have gorgeous white blooms that smell of honey! Perfect filler for paths and flowerbeds.It does reseed itself, but you'll still want to buy more seeds so you can seed every 2 months during the bloom season for constant blooms.
Sweet fragrant blooms, year round in FL
from Davenport, FL (near WDW)
I use AM Sweet Alyssum seeds to fill in around all my bulbs, periennials and in pots because they complement everything. They grow quickly to stiffle weeds, and are blooming in a matter of weeks. In full sun, and with generous hose sprinkling, they begin sprouting in about 3 days, and are a beautiful green carpet until the blooms arrive. In Florida, they grow year round, and survived the 2010 cold and frosts. They easily re-seed. Sprinkle the seeds generously on the ground and water, and watch them grow into a beautiful white carpet.
