| Hi.... I'm wondering if the colored allysums reseed as readily as the white type? My whites come up very well each year, but the colored ones don't seem to. Thanks, Dorian

|I've noticed the same thing in my garden. The white alyssums always come back but the purple and pink ones do not. I suspect that the colorful ones don't set as many viable seeds - perhaps they lost that ability through the hybridization process. In any event, enjoy them while they're blooming!
