Murasaki No Uta Stock
This royal purple, single-stemmed variety is fragrant and resplendent in the garden, vase or even on the dinner plate! Averaging 34-40 inches tall, each plant produces a robust and floriferous stalk of regal, ruffled blooms, so well suited to cutting and arranging. This Japanese variety is a favorite for ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arranging, and it is a great way to infuse sweet, clove-like fragrance and bold color into designs. Stocks are a popular choice for home gardeners in Japan, and these beautiful cousins of the cabbage do have edible f lowers! We love to use stock f lowers for flavoring and naturally dyeing everything from rice to pastries. They also taste phenomenal fresh in salads and as garnish.
