Stocks (Night Scented Stock)

 Feed in Moderation
  • Common Name: Stocks (Night Scented Stock)
  • Latin Name: Matthiola spp.
  • Family Name: Brassicaceae/Cruciferae
There is no known toxicity for this plant (although the seeds are said to contain diuretic and aphrodesiac properties), so feeding in moderation as part of a varied diet should be fine.

Do not confuse with Phlox which can look similar at various stages of growth.

Also do not confuse with Virginia Stock, which has both a resemblance to Stocks and a similar name, but is a different plant.
