One of the most fragrant flowers we grow, this stunning plant is a must-have for every gardener and is ideal for the mixed border. Flowering for many months, it fills the air with a sweet, jasmine-like scent. Showy white flowers open during the cool of the evening. Pollinators adore them, especially moths and butterflies. On our farm the hummingbirds even nest in the patch.

In areas with hot summer weather, plant in part shade. Sow seed 6-8 weeks before last frost. Do not cover and bottom water until seedlings emerge. Transplant out after all danger of frost has passed.
Harvesting/Vase Life Blossoms are fragile, so take care when harvesting. Remove spent flowers from lower half of stem every few days. Expect a vase life of 7 days.
