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 such as Erysimum ‘Apricot Delight’. This is a beautiful and floriferous, woody-stemmed small evergreen shrub, bearing masses of apricot-orange flowers on tall spires, for months on end. In southern regions it flowers all year round. Like other wallflowers, it’s a magnet for bees and butterflies.
