The Stock Twist, ' Matthiola incana', has a unique color and spicy-sweet fragrance that will delight you outside in the garden or inside as a cut flower. Stock is a cottage gardeners delight as it is one of the few outdoor flowering plants that can be brought indoors to bloom. Place them in a cool spot and they may bloom spring, summer, and fall. They will also tolerate a little frost. The flowers appear on spikes of 1/2 inch-1 inch cross-shaped single and double flowers.Plant Stock Twists in the fall in warm winter climates and they will bloom late winter and into spring. The Stock Twist prefers rich moist soil in full sun to light shade. If they are planted close to a window or in a window box, you can smell their sweet fragrance. Plant seeds in the spring after the last average frost date or in the fall for zones 9 or warmer.
Scientific Name : Matthiola incana
