Ruby Gem Wallflowers

Erysimum cheiri Ruby Gem (if you call them Cheiranthus it is the same plant) is a completely hardy plant that, when grown in good sized patches will make a real statement in bright red just as your late flowering daffs are finishing and before your alliums rear their beautiful heads. If the colour, a lovely, cheery red is not for you, then take a look at the rest of our range of ready to plant wallflower seedlings.

Providing you deadhead them, wallflowers are really good doers staying in flower for over three months, from March into June and if you love your wildlife they are also beautifully scented attracting pollinating insects.

Because they are so hardy, wallflowers are great container plants and are a must for any cutting garden. They also complement tulips brilliantly and can be planted at the same time to provide a great mixed display in late spring/early summer. Use Ruby Gem wallflowers in conjunction with a white tulip such as Diana or White Dream. You can go for the dashing look with a golden tulip such as Caractere or Daydream or be more gothic with darker tulips - Queen of Night and Black Parrot would be good choices.

Wallflower Trivia

Did you know that when we say wallflowers are scented, we mean it? In Elizabethan times, they were often carried as "nosegays" - to drown out the stench of the sewerless streets fo the 16th century.
