Matthiola Tricuspidata--Three Horned Stock--Brassicaceae

This mustard-family plant is supposed to bloom in June, but it is blooming now at the UC Botanical Garden. Pretty pink-lavender flowers fading to white at the center. It is easy to grow as long as it has good drainage. It wouldn't be easy in the Berkeley Clay in my garden! Like Common Stock, that many people grow in their gardens, this one is sweetly scented.
