Hesperis matronalis Alba is the white version of Hesperis matronalis. It blooms in early summer with long-stemmed bunches of flowers that are beautiful in the garden or the vase. The sweetly fragrant flowers attract butterflies. Hesperis matronalis Alba is a great addition to the heirloom flower garden. In my garden, it's combined with Oriental Poppies and Lupine.
Also known as Hesperis matronalis var. albiflora, White Sweet Rocket and Dame's Rocket. Hardy perennial in zones 3-9.
