Evening Scented Stock – Matthiola longipetala bicornis
This is an old-time favorite and one of the easiest, rewarding scented plants to grow. The flowers open in the late afternoon to evening and emit a beautiful fragrance. The scent is difficult to describe and has been compared to vanilla, rose, spice and even clove; however one thing is certain, once you experience it in your own garden it will become a summer fragrance you will never want to be without!
