Hi, this is my first post on this site. I also post on the RHS forums as Ian but have a problem with their website at the moment.
I'd really appreciate help in ID'ing this very pretty small flower. I had a couple in my borders last year from mixed wildflower seeds and this has self-seeded in the stones.
It's about 10 -12cm tall and the small flowers are branched, with four petals.
There was a little annual stock we grew as children, looked a bit like that. Not the night-scented stock.
Is it a seeded annual or is it a perennial from last year?
I remember, Virginian stock, Malcolmia maritima
Well done Nut
I was wracking my brains to think of that but all I could come up with was the Matthiola types.
Hi, spot on. Thank you for your replies. It had been identified for me last year on the RHS forum but I can't access those pages at the moment.
I have two rises in my little garden near steps to the front door where I sew night stock each year for the beautiful evening fragrance. So, maybe this came from seeds mixed up in those packets, rather than the wildflower seeds.
Hi Mike! I knew you'd recognise my post from the description I put.
