Chanter Alto Red Stock
Early flowering type. The beautiful, ruffled petals of this cherry-red, spray type stock set at the top of sturdy stems. Plants reach 32 inches tall, producing multiple branches with blooms at the top of the stem. A sublime choice for arranging, the blooms emit an enchanting clove-like fragrance. Stock is a very charming cousin of the cabbage, and the flowers are edible and quite delicious. These tasty little flowers can be used as a natural food dye and flavoring. We have used them to dye everything from rice to cookies, and they are great tossed fresh into salads.
