Plant Details

For many years there have been two different pinks with the name 'Sops in Wine'. This dates back to at least 1900, so it seems likely that two varieties came to be given the same name in different parts of the country, rather than just a modern mix up. We are pleased to be able to offer both versions. As far as we can tell, they have both been grown for several hundred years.

This version is apparently so-called because it was used to flavour wines and cordials.

Semi-double white flowers with a raspberry eye.

Good for cutting and putting in a vase. Excellent scent.

Height: 30cm

Common name(s): Pink; Gillyflower


All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
