SORRY, CURRENTLY SOLD OUT. We have been growing this for a quite a few years, but it remains a real rarity on the horticultural scene. An upright woody stem carries large rather cabbage-like clusters of silvery foliage (evergreen), festooned in summer by highly scented pure white flowers. Sunny spot. Any reasonable soil. 2 ½ feet. 2 litre pot.

Quite a sight when in full bloom, and quite a scent, too. Remove old flowering stems when they have finished.
We were intrigued to find ourselves mentioned on a blog as one of only four British nurseries offering this plant.
Matthiola Arborescens Alba is a hardy evergreen perennial plant with grey green leaves and highly scented white flowers in summer suitable for full sun.
