Mignonette Grandiflora, commonly known as Garden Mignonette, is long loved for its spicy-sweet vanilla scent that abundantly emanates when capturing the sun. This attractive flowering annual ornamental dates back to 1725 in Europe where it was celebrated for its intoxicating fragrance and outstanding performance as a cut flower. In 1811, President Thomas Jefferson recorded sowing Mignonette seeds in his beloved Monticello garden. The 24" - 30" inch vertical spires are fully surrounded by pale green and creamy white fringed micro florets that open from bottom to top. Spent blooms produce interesting lantern-type seed pods that can be used as an everlasting ingredient. Packet: 100 seeds.
