I happened on several plantings of stocks in the Lincoln Park Conservatory last spring and delighted in their generic "posy-ness."  They are the epitome of what the word flower means to me. I wish I had a garden full of them in all their various colors.

I hope I get to see stocks in bloom again this year. While they are beautiful in their own way, they appear to be early prototypes for roses.
