This plant enjoys Full Sun, attracts butterflies & is AMAZINGLY SWEET SCENTED! A small grouping of plants will fill your senses with an intoxicatingly sweet aroma in the early evening. Easily grown in a variety of conditions, but does best in even moisture. These plants produce a profusion of lilac flowers. Once you have grown them once, you will never want to be without them again. For cut flowers, choose stems with flowers that have just opened. Delicately strip the foliage that will fall below the water level, and place it in water immediately. Fabulously scented and delicate addition for baskets, beds and borders.
Sow in early Spring. Do not cover because need light to germinate. Germination 5 to 10 days. Water seedlings occasionally until they become established.
A member of the Matthiola genus native to Eurasia.
