Reseda odorata. A traditional Victorian cottage garden plant, Mignonette’s medium green foliage yields plump, dense spires of chartreuse and white flowers that fade to cream. While the plant is not overly showy, the flowers are intensely fragrant, with a sweet and spicy scent that makes a wonderful addition to floral arrangements. Even dried, the flowers retain their fragrance for several months, and can be added to homemade potpourri. Seedlings do not transplant well. Sow seeds directly into the garden after all danger of frost has passed, pressing them lightly into the soil. Provide full sun and consistent moisture, and thin the seedlings to 12" apart. Pinching young plants encourages branching and even more flowers. Deadhead spent blooms and sow more seeds every 2 weeks for an extended flowering period. Annual. Summer flowering. Height: 12" to 24".
