|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.
One of the most generous and early bloomers, 'Midget' has long-blooming, fully double-flower spikes on dwarf plants 8 to 10 inches tall. Very heat tolerant.
