Evening Scented Stock, Night Scented Stock Matthiola Bicornis is an annual that has small lilac colored blossoms with powerful lily-like perfume. The flower opens in the late afternoon to evening and emits delightful fragrance that fills the cool, calm evening air. If you sow this plant close enough to your house (Below windows, patio tubs, window boxes, even a small sowing in hanging baskets), you will get the benefit of this beautiful fragrance.
Evening Scented Stock, Night Scented Stock Matthiola Bicornis is a great garden flower. Small, urban gardens in particular are well suited for plants that begin to release their perfume as the sun goes down. Areas enclosed or partly surrounded by shrubs, hedges or walls are ideal for holding wafting, evening fragrance. Where there is less chance of air movement, scents become trapped and more concentrated. The plant is very easy to grow - just sow patches at random in various parts of your garden. It thrives in sunshine and is ideal for raised beds, containers and the front of borders.
The plant is attractive to bees, butterflies and birds.
