Alyssum is now botanically called Lobularia, but in spite of the slight name change it is still one of the most popular edging plants out there. Where its low growing, spreading habit mingles so well with all other flowers and the bonus is, it is easy and quick to grow.

Carpet of Snow is a dwarf growing variety with a spread of up to 35cm. The pure white flowers makes a lovely show against blues and reds and really does look like a carpet of snow on the ground, also this flower is very attractive to pollinators such as bees. The plant itself grows to a very low height of 10cm.
