The genus Aurinia is native to southeastern Europe, Turkey, and Russia. It is closely related to, but distinct from, Alyssum. All are in the Brassica family (Brassicaceae), which makes them not-so-distant relatives of broccoli and mustard. The common name for Aurinia saxatilis is Basket of Gold Alyssum.
