Matthiola incana

Stock, Matthiola annua, Gilliflower, Gillyflower

Gardeners and florists love Stock's sweet clove-scented flowers. Short spikes of single or double flowers in white, pink, red, purple and bicolors bloom above hairy, greenish-gray foliage. More fragrant at night, so plant beneath windows, along walkways and patios or in containers. Excellent as a cut flower. Grows and flowers best in cool spring weather and early fall. In mild winter areas, set plants out in fall for winter bloom. Will often seed themselves.
