A member of the mustard family, Matthiola Longipetala -- also called night stock or evening-scented stock - is an annual plant that produces highly fragrant blooms that open during the evening hours. Planting this stunning flower will provide a unique addition to your garden or growing in a decorative pot on your patio. Like other annuals, night stock requires proper planting, care and maintenance to ensure the life of the plant.

Common name: night-scented stock, evening-scented stock
Color: Floral white and Pink lace and Rich brilliant lavender.
Bloom time: early spring
Height: approximately 45.0 cm (1.46 feet).
Difficulty level: Easy

Planting & Care

Sunlight: Full sun / partial sun .

Soil: Ideally plant in loamy, clay and silty soil and try to keep the ph of your soil between the range of 6.6 and 7.8 as Night-Scented Stock likes to be in weakly acidic soil - weakly alkaline soil

Water: When watering the evening-scented stock, try not to dampen any of the plant parts with the water and only hydrate the annual in the early morning hours. This will give the plant enough time to dry before the sun goes down and helps reduce the possibility of fungus attacking the plant.

Fertilizer: Consider adding fertilizer -- such as well- composted mulch or an all-purpose fertilizer designed for annuals -- to the night stock. These fertilizers will add much need nutrients to the soil.

Care:
  • The seeds of the night stock can be sowed directly in the flowerbed where you want them to grow or you can germinate them indoors.
  • Typically, the seeds will germinate within 7 to 14 days after planting and requires a temperature of about 70 degrees.
  • If planting the seeds directly in the ground, wait until the weather is warm and choose a location where the annuals will receive ample sunlight with fertile soil that features good drainage.
  • If the soil is poor, amend it with a few inches of organic compost, which will add nutrients to the soil while improving its drainage.
  • Plant the seeds about 1/4 inch deep in the amended soil keeping them 12 inches apart.
  • Water the soil regularly when it begins to dry but do not let the soil become soggy.


Care:
  • To encourage more blooms, remove the spent deadheads once the flowers have faded.
  • Do not merely toss the spent blooms on the ground and instead compost them or discard in a trash bag.
  • Night stock flowers can be harvested for use in cut floral arrangements when they are open about half way.
  • Typically, these blooms last for about 8 days in water and require recutting the stems at an angle while holding the end of the stem underwater.
  • Even though nigh stock generally does not have see an abundance of problems, it can develop powdery mildew and fungal infestations if not properly cared for.
