Erysimum cheiri 'Sunset Purple'

Plant details

Spring bedding wouldn't be complete without wallflowers, which make a bright and very fragrant scent in beds and borders early in the year. They are easy to grow and perform reliably on most soils. For the best results sow in May in a nursery bed and move to it's final planting position in autumn. Plants will flower the following spring. They are short-lived perennials but are generally grown as biennials and discarded after flowering. 'Sunset Purple' produces fragrant, rich purple blooms.
