Erysimum (Wallflower)

Variation: Bowles Mauve, Purple, Yellow, Yellow orange

Spring bedding is synonymous with wallflowers, which make a bright and fragrant accent in beds and borders early in the year, and are discarded after flowering. Less familiar are the perennial wallflowers’. This is a beautiful and floriferous, woody-stemmed perennial, bearing masses of  flowers on tall spires, for months on end. In southern regions, it flowers all year round.

For best results grow in moist but well-drained soil, in sun or partial shade. Trim flower stalks as they fade. It’s a short-lived perennial, but is easily replaced with young plants raised from cuttings.
