Stock Seed

Product ID: 1887

Early blooming, branching stock.

A mix of blue, white, yellow, pink, apricot, red, purple, 'Fantasy' (soft pink), Sunset, and Marine. Quartet's strong branching habit and hard stems make it an excellent choice for flower bouquets. Pinching is required for a well-balanced spray form. The Quartet series is "selectable" for double flowers, and 55% double without selection. Colors are subject to slight variance due to seed availability.

•Edible Flowers: The peppery, clove-like flavor of the flowers lends itself well to use as a garnish on salads, desserts, and drinks.

Ht. 18-24". Avg. 18,000 seeds/oz. Packet: 50 seeds.
