Lobularia is a semi-trailing, warm weather annual and tender perennial. This compact herbaceous ornamental is native to the Canary Islands and regions along the Mediterranean, and is commonly known as Sweet Alyssum. The leaves of this variety are fine, linear, and pale green or gray-green. In late spring or early summer it becomes covered with dense, showy clusters of tiny four-petaled flowers that emit sweet, permeating fragrance which is attractive to butterflies. This variety is fast growing and floriferous. Lobularia blooms will continue through the season if conditions allow.
