Bred for specific seasonal performance, the NEW Centum, Aida, Figaro, Opera and Mathilda series offer an outstanding lineup of greenhouse-grown selectable matthiola for year-round production. These matthiola are well-matched for timing and deliver very uniform plant performance. Transplanting for seasons earlier than listed will result in later flowering.

Greenhouse-grown matthiola are distinguished from field-grown types by the softer green leaves.

NOTE: Selectable matthiola will produce approximately 50% double-flowering types, but it is easy to select out the single-flowered types at the young plant stage. Refer to the PanAmerican Seed Product Information Guide at for details.
