Wallflowers have been a gardener's go-to for longer than books record. They were loved by the Elizabethans, and wallflowers with Bedder in the name are probably Victorian.
Wallflowers are easy to grow in containers and poor soil, they collectively fill flowering gaps at the bookends of winter and go wonderfully well with spring flowering bulbs (especially tulips). They are scented, make great cutting flowers, and bees love them. Perfect.
Most common wallflowers are biennials, which means that you throw the plant away when it is finished flowering. However, our range are short lived perennials that will give you a few years of service before it's time to remove them.
Deadhead all wallflowers regularly.
Older texts may categorise wallflowers, which are mostly Erysimum cheiri varieties, as either E. suffruticosum or Cheiranthus cheiri; some regional common names include bleeding hearts and gillflowers.
Please note that annual plants are not covered by our year guarantee, because they are not supposed to last that long!
