Stock, which is also called Virginia Stock Flower, Gilly Flower, or Matthiola, is named after Pierandrea Mattioli, an Italian botanist who in cultivating the flower believed that it had medicinal value because of its fragrance. Stock comes in a variety of colors and the scent is light and sweet. Keep water clean and the flowers should last from 5-7 days. Variety received varies based on farms availability.
Grown both outdoors and indoors, David Repetto's seasonal blooms are grown with the skill and care of a third generation farmer who loves what he does. His business provides 20-25 employees with year-round floricultural work. In an industry that's moved almost exclusively towards Southern Hemisphere imports, often in countries where labor standards and controls for use of toxic chemicals aren't nearly as regulated as they are in the United States, especially in California. We're proud to work with local flower growers to maintain and grow this region's rich history in floriculture.Read more
