Product Description
Maximum quantity available reached.

(a.k.a. Damask Violet, Dames Rocket, Dame’s Violet) A very old variety that was first recorded in England in 1375. It native range was from southern Europe to Siberia. Dames Rocket has been growing on my farm since my great grandparents first settled there. Every year it begins to bloom just as the old fashioned lilac panicles open. The two are the exact same color and put on a beautiful and fragrant show for many weeks. The mauve flowers resemble perennial phlox and are extremely fragrant. To prevent it from self seeding, simply dead head the spent flowers. Ht: 3’ tall. Biennial. Sun part shade.

50-100 seeds per packet.
