They have nice flowers & sweet smell(hance name) & there is medical properties too i hear/seen somewhere,

"Lobularia maritima syn. Alyssum maritimum, common name sweet alyssum or sweet alison, also commonly referred to as just alyssum (from the genus Alyssum in which it was formerly classified) is a species of low-growing flowering plant in the family Brassicaceae.

Etymology

The genus name Lobularia comes from the a Greek word meaning "small pod", referring to the shape of the fruits. The name of the species maritima refers to its preferred coastal habitat"
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"In Herbalism

At one time this herb had medicinal uses in the treatment of rabies, which is reflected in both its botanical name (a-lyssum = not enraged) and its common names, madwort and healbite. This is apparently the source of the idea that it is helpful in calming anger. In Afghanistan, this plant is used medicinally for asthma and nervous disorders, and in Spain it is a diuretic and provider of vitamin C. The edible flowers and leaves taste like a broccoli leaf (which shows both this plant's membership in the mustard family and an Airy pungency). In Spain, leaves and flowers are added to salads to give them a little extra spicyness. However, some people with very sensitive skin get a rash from handling this plant."
