Posted by on September 4th 2012 in

Aurinia 'Summit'

Aurinia, or Basket of Gold, is a perennial alyssum here in Minnesota. Clusters of of tiny, golden yellow flowers blanket the plant from late spring through late summer. Aurinia spreads quickly, produces a large and long-lasting quantity of flowers, and is easy to care for. It’s a wonderful plant for rock gardens, borders, or cascading over a wall. The Summit variety is particularly disease resistant and drought tolerant. It grows 8-12″ tall. Prune back halfway immediately after flowering, but do not prune in fall or early spring.

    I was at Sunnyside today asking about this plant (aurinia saxatilis) but they said you do not have it. Do you??

      We have a few growers who supply us with this plant. My hope is that it will become available to us in the next week. Check back, or call the store.
