Love-in-a-mist Nigella damascena 'Albion Green Pod' - pure white flowers with a prominent boss of stamens are framed by a collar of wispy foliage, creating a beautiful, ethereal effect. As the flowers fade, fantastic green seedpods develop, and both these and the flowers make wonderful additions to fresh or dried arrangements

Sweet Alyssum-best in smell-Known for its carpet of lightly fragrant flowers in white, rose, lavender, or purple, sweet alyssum is an easy-to-grow, low-maintenance cool-season annual.

Super heat tolerant. Low water needs.  Fast multiplier.  Seems to thrive in rocky soil. Green, really green all year round.  A single bulb planted 2 years ago has now multiplied to 30 bulbs.  Easy to transplant.  They come in a multitude of colors.  The Zephyranthes Candida in the photo are the variety that I have had the most luck with.
