Growing 'Winter Flame' Wallflower

Erysimum is a brassica, a member of the cabbage family. It is drought-tolerant, and prefers poorer soils with sharp drainage, and alkaline to neutral pH. They are ideal for gravel, Mediterranean-style, and coastal gardens.

It is quite hardy, RHS rating H5, but its foliage will suffer in windy and wet cold winters without protection: a bit of fleece in midwinter goes a long way to keep the worst of it off, or it may be more convenient to grow your wallflowers in pots and move them into shelter. But a well drained, sunny urban microclimate, shielded from the wind by buildings should be fine.

Chop plants in half after flowering. Propagate cuttings to replace plants when they are a few years old

In Your Garden Design

Set the border alight with this richly coloured little perennial, using it to contrast with zinging euphorbias and a 'Spring Green' tulip. Or, as it is the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, go for a patriotic take on red, white and blue by putting it with white phlox and Alba lavender.

Its compact growth also makes it great for growing in pots or low walls around a patio area.
