My favourite wallflower!

Wallflowers usually come in gaudy yellows, reds and rusts and are grown as bedding plants, but I much prefer this soft purple version, Erysimum ‘Bowles Mauve’, that is grown as a short-lived evergreen perennial. It’s really easy to take cuttings from and, if regularly dead-headed, will keep producing flowers right through from late winter into the early summer. Love it!
