Fragrant Perennials
PURPLE DAMES’ ROCKET Hesperis matronalis         $2.00
With many other common names (Damask Violet, Queen’s Gilliflower, Sweet Rocket, etc.) which attest to its long use and popularity. Its Latin name comes from the evening star, for it is at this time of day that its clove-like fragrance is most pronounced. Strictly speaking, it is a biennial or even perennial, but it freely self-sows and will bloom the next May-June from these seedlings. This is an indispensable plant for the fragrant garden–so easy to keep, and so lovely to have. Growing to 3 feet, its cruciform flowers smell more of violet during the day.
