Stock Deep Rose Flower Seeds (Matthiola Incana Ten Week Deep Rose), Annual.

Minimum 25 seeds per package.

These lovely annuals grown from seeds have been popular garden flowers for centuries. In Britain, they date back to the 1500s and were called Gilliflowers. They were known for their sweet fragrance and woody "stock" or stem. This deep rose colored Matthiola Incana flower makes a breathtaking display of cool season color. Up to 60% of the plant will be covered with the gorgeous blooms!

Rose Stock flowers perform best in temperatures under 75F and tolerate light frosts. Where winters are mild set out plants in early fall for blooms beginning in winter or early spring. Stock Matthiola Incana is very well-suited for coastal climates, and enjoy cool, damp summers. They are very common in the Pacific Northwest. Stock flowers are excellent for cutting and will last in a vase for up to 2 weeks. They have a wonderful fragrance, as well!
