This European native arrived on the shores of America in the 17th century, and rapidly escaped from gardens to become a naturalized wildflower. The genus name Hesperis comes from the Greek word for “evening,” since the lovely scent of the flowers becomes especially strong at dusk. The common name “rocket” refers to this plant’s fast growth, which causes it to be classified as an invasive species in several states.
