Dark Knight™ Sweet Alyssum Lobularia hybrid
Standard PPP. Early Spring through Fall Finish
For all sizes of containers, pinch the liner 1–2 weeks after transplant; for containers larger than 6” and for hanging baskets, trim around the edge of the container as needed prior to spacing or hanging of the baskets.
A Sumagic spray at 5 ppm, 3 weeks after transplant is effective. Bonzi at 1 to 2 ppm is a good holding drench, do not apply too early - apply when the plant just starts over the edge of the pot. Topflor spray at 10 ppm is also effective. Snow Princess is also responsive to day/night temperature differential (DIF), and are shorter with a negative DIF.
Standard pest and disease practices as outlined in the notes.
-Water early in the day so foliage is dry by nightfall to decrease disease pressure.
