Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Sweet Rocket bears aromatic clumps of soft lilac to purple flowers from May to July, producing a stunning display when grown in large drifts. Despite Hesperis matronalis being a biennial or relatively short-lived perennial, it will easily seed about to form masses of blooms that will scent the air on a balmy summer evening. The lavishly perfumed flowers will attract many pollinating insects, making Hesperis a superb choice for herbaceous borders and wildlife gardens. Sweet Rocket is also excellent in early summer bouquets. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Culinary information: Some parts of these flowers are edible. Click here for more details about edible flowers.
