Stock Column 'Apricot'

Matthiola Incana


Column stocks are traditional cut flower varieties, with each plant bearing a single, densely packed flower spike on a tall stem that is perfect for the vase. 


Single-stemmed florist types have dense, showy spikes of scented, large, double flowers closely spaced on the stems.


Superb cutting variety
