Sunny yellow flowers bloom in the spring, and gray-green foliage provides year-round interest, especially in sunny dry areas.

The common names, Basket of Gold, Golden Alyssum, and Goldentuft pretty much describe the primary feature of this perennial in the springtime, with bright yellow blooms covering the low-growing, gray-green foliage. Once established, Basket of Gold is fairly drought tolerant, and does well in rock gardens, borders, retaining walls, and container planters where it can spill over the edges. Allegedly deer-resistant, it is attractive to pollinators. This would be great in combination with iberis, saxifrage, or creeping phlox. Once the blooms are finished, the plant can be sheared back lightly to keep this tidy until the next spring.
