Stock 'Vintage Brown'

Matthiola Incana


Unique Florist Type bloom color and excellent stem quality.

Tightly spaced florets on thick, strong, straight stems. Single-stem or "column type" stock for one-cut harvest. Vintage Brown is not brown but rose-taupe in color and produces about 55% double-flowering plants.
