Hoary Stock

hoary-stockName: Hoary Stock – Matthiola incana

Meaning: Lasting beauty

Also called “night-scented stock” or “evening-scented stock”, but the name Hoary Stock made me smirk. The flowers may have lasting beauty and a gorgeous clovy scent but the lasting beauty does not extend to the water that stocks have been sitting in, after a couple of days it will be truly disgusting.
