sweet rocket

Sweet rocket - a haze of silver-white flowers adored by butterflies, bees and moths - always with a hint of violet in the day - but like white moonlight in the April gloaming

    Gorgeously scented pure white flowers are held above rosettes of dark green leaves. This is a biennial or short-lived perennial that readily self-seeds, often coming true to type, so it is perfect for naturising in a wildlife garden. Like all sweet rockets it is highly attractive to bees and other beneficial insects, and the fragrant flowers perfume the air in late spring and early summer evenings.

  • Garden care: Replace plants every two to three years as flowering diminishes with age. Plants will self-seed freely.
