One of the oldest pinks, which has been grown since the fourteenth century. 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.
Common name(s): Pink; Gillyflower
Please note that 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. The other plant has wine red flowers with light pink patches on the petals and we have now sourced one of these plants so that we can propagate it and include it in our offering later in the year.
