Sweet Alison Macro
Identification: Sweet Alyssum (Lobularia maritima syn. Alyssum maritimum)
I spent the better part of 3 hours creeping through the beautiful gardens of the Royal Botanical Garden's Rock Garden last weekend. This beautiful flower cluster is part of a low lying ground cover that produces thick, plentiful clusters of small 4 petal, white flowers. As an added bonus after reviewing my images, there are tiny little yellow bugs crawling throughout the clusters. To get a better idea of the scale of the flowers and bugs, the individual flowers are roughly 5mm in diameter.
