Stocks - Mammoth Excelsior Mix

These 2-foot tall plants bloom with single and double fragrant flowers. This is a good cut flower with a very strong but pleasant smell, a favorite in the cut flower industry. They can be dried by hanging them in a dry spot out of the direct sun. The deeper shades hold their color best. The fragrance endures as well. Shades include white, pink, and violet.
