Description
Hesperis matronalis is at its best when grown in large drifts, leaving plenty to spare for early summer bouquets. Fragrant clusters of bloom, coloured pale lilac to purple, are produced from May to July. The richly scented flowers of Sweet Rocket are irresistible to pollinating insects, making this an excellent choice for both wildlife areas and the herbaceous border. Although Hesperis is a biennial or relatively short-lived perennial, it will happily seed about to create swathes of bloom that will perfume the air on warm summer evenings. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Hesperis enjoys a fertile, moist, well drained soil. It is happy in most soils, including chalky, alkaline conditions but dislikes acid soils. Choose a position in sun or partial shade.
More Info
After flowering, leave the faded Hesperis flowers in place set seed, and it will quickly form large swathes throughout borders.
