Masses of Brilliant Yellow for Weeks
The Basket of Gold, Aurinia saxatilis 'Summit', or Perennial Alyssum, is one of the most popular of spring-flowering perennials, most often seen in rock gardens or as a border edging.
The Basket of Gold is a drought tolerant, evergreen groundcover that prefers full sun. It forms a low, bushy mound of grey-green leaves, smothered by masses of tiny, bright golden-yellow flowers for several weeks. After bloom, the silver green foliage makes a wonderful groundcover all season long and into the winter!
It is a compact plant that has excellent disease resistance. Immediately after blooming, clip plants back by half to keep a dense form and ensure abundant blooms each season.
The Basket of Gold will provide a brilliant shot of color in the spring that will attract butterflies, and beautiful, silver green foliage the rest of the year that is anything but boring.
