Multi-color Alyssum

Oh, hey – today (through Sunday), I’ll be in Centennial Colorado at The Highlands Garden Center (8080 S Holly Street). Hours are: Friday from 2:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.; Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.; and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. – with a whole bunch of neat pictures of bees, birds, flowers, etc.

Don’t know if I’ve posted too many on the alyssum. Part of the problem is that they don’t rest much on these exceptionally tiny blossoms. They bounce around a lot and that makes shooting tough. Love these plants, though. Once they get started, they don’t stop until a hard frost. They’re only about six inches tall (normally – we’ve got some aberrations in a few spots that have gotten huge) and they make a nice, annual border in some of our gardens. The bees seem pretty fickle about them – tho I do notice more natives on them than honeybees. And that counts for something.
