Description for Stock

Plant height: 5 - 8 inches
Plant spread:

Some stocks are grown as annuals (the Ten week Stocks). These varieties are sown in spring (generally from March onwards in colder areas, earlier in regions with mild winters). They give a good summer flower display. Other varieties take longer to develop and are treated as biennials.

These are often referred to as "Brompton stocks". In cool temperate regions they are generally sown in summer (June and July) to flower in the following spring. The extra trouble of overwintering the plants is compensated for by the showy spring floral display. In hard winters there may be some mortality and a well drained sheltered site suits them best.

Common name(s): Brompton stock,Matthiola incana, known as hoary stock,tenweeks stock,night scented stock or evening scented stock is applied to Matthiola longipetala (syn. bicornis)
Flower colours: white
Bloom time: May to July
Max reacahble height: 1.00 to 3.00 feet

Caring for Stock
