Lobularia Yolo Series - White

This white form of lobularia is different from the Stream series in that it has a more upright (tall) habit.  It will still trail a little, but not as vigorously as the Stream.

In addition, the Yolo series has a reputation of tolerating hot temperatures better than some other forms of Alyssum.
