Plant details

Wallflowers are an essential ingredient of spring bedding, creating a bright display and a rich scent. 'Sunset Apricot' is a new variety with pale apricot blooms. For the best results sow in May in a nursery bed and move to its final planting position in autumn. Plants will flower the following spring.
