ALYSSUM (al-iss’um). An old garden favorite for low borders, edgings, and for informal planting. ”Sweet Alice.” There are low mat-like varieties. A. procumbens, or ”Carpet of Snow,” but the mauve kinds are more popular (Lilac Queen) as annuals. Grow easily, anywhere, ex­cept in driest climate. The yellow­ flowered Saxatile and Rostratum make delightful rock garden subjects. These are spring flowering only. The annuals bloom all the year round in mild climates. Seeds sown any time, but best broadcast.
