Thrives in hot or cold weather
Unlike its cool-weather cousin alyssum, fast-growing lobularia will flower all summer, producing a zillion tiny flowers with a gentle honey fragrance – perfect for attracting butterflies!
Lobularia may be used as a flowering ground cover or as a border in the garden, but it really shines when allowed to cascade over the sides of containers and hanging baskets. The most common flower color is silver or white, but lavender and raspberry varieties are also available.
If it starts to look shaggy, lobularia can be trimmed to maintain a neat appearance. Feed it twice a month with an all-purpose fertilizer and remove any weeds that might pop through if planted in the ground.
