Aurinia saxatilis ‘Summit’


Perennial Alyssum

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.091.180


One of the most popular of spring-flowering perennials, most often seen in rock gardens or as a border edging. This forms a low bushy mound of grey-green leaves, smothered by masses of tiny, bright golden-yellow flowers for several weeks. This improved selection is compact and has excellent disease resistance. Clip plants back by half, immediately after blooming but do not prune in fall or early spring. Not easily divided. Drought tolerant. Evergreen.
