Sweet Alyssum Flower Meaning

Sweet alyssum, Lobularia maritima, means "worth beyond beauty". It is native to southern Europe. A very hardy annual with a sweet fragrance good for borders. Blooms a very long time. This is one of my favorite flowers to grow, it loves to peek out through rocks and mine reseeds every year. Also, I found that the name is from "a-not lyssa" - rage - a myth relates that the plant dispels anger. Sure makes me happy when I look at it.
