This popular cottage garden favourite is currently enjoying a revival and are definitely not to be overlooked! Evergreen erysimum hybrids have an alluring perfume are versatile and undemanding, although technically a short lived perennial, wallflowers tend to be grown as a biennial, and are tough enough to cope in even the poorest of soils. Height and spread: 50cm (24").

  • Collection comprises:
  • Wallflower 'Winter Joy' - a striking fragrant variety with cheery mauve blooms. This evergreen erysimum hybrid has a neat, compact habit making it perfect for beds, borders and containers.

  • Wallflower 'Winter Party' - the richly fragrant blooms of Wallflower 'Winter Party' create a tapestry of colour in shades of burnt orange and mauve.
  • Wallflower 'Winter Rouge'
  • - compact and upright plants with dense clusters of red and orange blooms that mature to a mauve shade.

Pot up wallflower plants using free-draining compost, and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outside. When plants are well grown, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before planting outdoors on free draining soil in full sun. Erysimum plants are tolerant of most neutral or alkaline soils and will even cope well on very poor soils.
Feed and water plants until they are fully established. Trim back wallflowers after flowering to prevent them from becoming leggy.
