Hesperis Matronalis Var. Albiflora (Sweet Rocket)

Scented white flowers. Great for wildlife gardens


Gorgeously scented pure white flowers are held above rosettes of dark green leaves. This is a biennial or short-lived perennial that readily self- seeds itself, and often comes true from seed, so it is perfect for naturising in a wildlife garden. Like all sweet rockets it is highly attractive to bees a nd other beneficial insects, and the fragrant flowers perfume the air in late spring and early summer evenings.
