Ivory White Wallflowers

Erysimum cheiri Ivory White (Erysimum was known as Cheiranthus) is a hardy plant that looks at its best when planted in groups where it creates a block of creamy ivory just after spring bulbs have faded and before your summer border gets into full swing. Wallflowers are highly scented which means they are loved by pollinating insects. That, in turn makes them essential planting if you have an interest in wildlife. Unlike many white and near white flowers that go brown at the first sign of rain, Ivory White holds up very well indeed in wet weather. However, if a creamy white does not fit your planting scheme and Ivory White is not for you, then take a look at the rest of our range of ready to plant wallflower seedlings.

All the Erysimum cheiri wallflowers are very short lived perennials that are best treated as biennials (being sown one year and flowers the next).

Wallflowers are natural planting companions of tulips. They go together extremely well; their flowering periods overlap, the wallflowers carry on into July covering up the tulip foliage as it dies back, and to top it all both can be planted at the same time. If you are looking for inspiration, try Ivory White wallflowers with tulips such as Blue Diamond, Candy Prince or for a more subtle effect a white tulip such as White Triumphator.

Wallflower Trivia

Did you know that wallflowers got their name because they adore the loose, very well drained lime mortar that is so often found along the bottom of old walls? Given a chance they seed and germinate into walls made with lime mortar for the same reason.
