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.
We are old pals from the other site. Good to have you on board.
Hi Mike! I knew you'd recognise my post from the description I put.
