Aurinia General Information

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.

Aurinia Plant Care

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.
