Stock - StoX Champagne

Sale price$6.00
MATTHIOLA INCANA

I'm not sure what I was expecting from our trials of the new StoX series, but they totally blew me over with how good they were! For a starters they survived our less than ideal trial conditions of rather late planting, and next to no irrigation/watering in their tunnel bed, and somehow came out the other side flourishing!

Opening a pinky peach Champagne slowly fades to a unique mix of candy magenta. Striking en masse on the plants, but their super skill is blending together all the spring colours for bouquets! 

A 50/50 mix between doubles and singles. 

Being apart of the brassica family, it's best to try and time sowing after your white butterfly numbers subside in autumn but with enough time to make it to flowering before their population explodes back in spring - or be prepared to net them and/or treat with weekly/fortnightly sprays of BT (Bacillus thuringiensis - organic bacteria) to keep the munching caterpillars under control.
