  • Thank you, but definitely not. Only about 12" to 18" tall - straight erect stems. But thanks for suggestion.

    A view of the vertical plant with foliage, allowing us to see the growth habit would be more likely to get a correct ID. 

    Height achieved by Hesperis matronalis depends a lot upon growing conditions.
