Product Description

Sweet Rocket 'Pale Lavender'
Hesperis matronalis

We’ve been growing this hard-to-find variety for many years and it’s one of the most beautiful biennials that blooms on our farm each spring. Towering stems are loaded with billowy flowers that are well-loved by pollinators. This old fashioned favorite is the palest lavender-mauve with a slightly darker eye. Blooms have a sugary candy scent that lingers in the evening air.

Plant type: biennial 
Height: 36-48”

How to Grow: 
Sow seeds from late spring to early summer and plant seedlings in the garden at least 6 weeks before your first autumn frost. Plants will winter over in the garden and bloom the following spring.

Harvesting/Vase Life:
Harvest when ⅓ of the flowers on a stem are open. Seed pods also make an excellent bouquet filler. Expect a vase life of at least a week. Stems grow in the vase so keep this in mind when arranging.
