White and orange-tip butterflies are drawn to the massed white or lilac flowers, which give off a strong scent in the evening, and so also attract moths.In the popular 'language of flowers' sweet rocket was taken to portray deceit, because, whilst it gave out a lovely perfume in the evening, during the day-time there was none. This fact is also reflected in the ancient name of Hesperis, or Vesper flower, vespers being the evening church service.
