Countdown: Six Top Ideas for Gardeners This Spring
Idea # 5:
Lots of new plants come out every year and that is nothing new. What is new is this completely different trailing annual called Snow Princess Alyssum (the white plant in the photo above). I had it in pots last year (2009) and couldn’t believe how great it was – blooming all summer and trailing over the pots a good 18” even in late fall. It never failed to flower like other alyssums (that go to seed early and then look kind of washed out): this one looked bright white in all conditions. Loved it – and the good news is it should be available this spring at your favorite garden center.
