Evening-Scented Stock

Pretty purple and lilac flowers are small but their fragrance in the evening is unforgettable. Leaves are usually a gray-green and the perfumed flowers can be produced from spring to autumn. Tuck among other flowers near porches, windows, decks, etc. to enjoy its powerful perfume. 

Winter annual in warmest regions. 

History

Stocks were probably brought from southern Europe into England by the Normans, and both perennial and annual stocks were certainly well established by the 16th century.
