Alyssum saxatile 'Basket of Gold'

Alyssum saxatile is a spring-blooming perennial with gray-green leaves and bright yellow flowers. It's s an important plant for attracting butterflies and beneficial insects early in the season before most other flowers bloom.

Alyssum saxatile typically lives for several years before the plants get old and woody. It self sows, but not invasively. It's a good groundcover for a small area.

Try Basket of Gold with other spring bloomers like columbine, dragonhead, forget-me-not and lychnis. It's nice for brightening up the area around shrubs.

Also known as Gold Dust and Aurinia saxatilis. Deer resistant. Hardy perennial in zones 3-9.
