You've sold me too! I've never heard of them either - is there another name that they go by? Are they annuals ?

Thanks for the reminder. I may have some come from seed - night scented stocks - from last year but must hurry out and buy some more just in case. They are the most incredible little flowers. Not much to look at but the scent is amazing. Even when I pick a couple of blooms and put them in the house the whole place smells sweet. And they last long into the fall for me. Every garden should have some....

Do they do well in pots??? or in the ground?

Do they need full sun, or can they handle shade???? I'd love some on my deck and at the front porch.

Someone gave me a pkg of seeds of stocks that I didn't get started

I didn't know they self seeded.

I may buy some then. I do like them

They definitely do well in pots...the ones I got are all going in containers.

The scent is spicey but also sweet.I can't walk past the bush
