Sweet Rocket / Dame's Rocket (Hesperis matronalis) Seeds - Purple
Also known as Dame's Rocket, this enticing and eye-catching plant flowers in abundance and produces fragranced purple blooms. From the same plant family as the salad leaf rocket, the leaves of this plant are edible along with the flowers, which look wonderful sprinkled in salads.
This plant attracts many beneficial insects to the garden, and is particularly favoured by night feeding moths as the flowers release their strongest scent in the evening. This plant grows as a biennial or short-lived perennial, meaning it produces foliage in its first year, then flowers and seed in its second. A great addition to a meadow, it self-seeds freely so you will get returning plants year after year.
