White Alyssum for Orchards

  • Botanical Name: Lobularia maritima
Attractive beneficial insect plant sought after by grape growers and orchardists alike because: · It is easy to grow and drought tolerant · It self sows readily and flowers over a long season · Sowing can be timed for when it is most needed · It looks good and has a low growing habit  drifts of snow! · It is ideal for predator insects as umbelliferae flowers with shallow florets suit their short mouth parts.
