Plantable Pots (3.5x3.5x4")
Alyssum are compact mound-forming perennials. A classic staple for border's edge or rock garden. Spreading plants with dense heads of golden-yellow flowers in early spring.
Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho
at this time.
Cut back by a third after flowering to improve appearance. Do not cut back in fall, as plants are semi-evergreen. Remove any winter damage in spring. Division can be done in the fall, but only if you must. Alyssum resents being moved. Only fertilize every other year or so in the fall - too much fertilizer causes them to lose their compact shape.
Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!
We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
We use custom, earth-friendly packaging to make sure your order arrives in great condition, and we ship based on the best planting time for your growing zone (see the approximate dates below), unless otherwise indicated at checkout. If you wish, you can indicate a specific ship date during checkout.
