Sweet alice (alyssum) is a hardy flowering annual that grows really easily from seed. It has a mass of tiny flowers and come in white, pink, purple hues with a sweet soft fragrance. The fragrance attracts hoverflies and ladybugs, so it is good to plant around vegetables in the garden that may have trouble with aphids, which hoverflies and ladybugs love to eat 🙂

Alyssum is a member of the mustard family, and though not often consumed is edible.
