Product Information

Originally from southern Europe, this familiar, slow-growing and slightly bushy member of the pink family has lance-shaped leaves and flat heads of bi-coloured flowers. It is very easy to grow.

There are many varieties but mostly in pastel shades of pink and mauve. Although often grown as a biennial, Sweet Williams can last several years.

This plant is worth growing for its wonderful scent alone, moths love it  but the flowers too are extremely attractive. It is also a good plant for attracting bees.
