Wallflower English Erysimum Cheiri, Cheiranthus Cheiri is a herbaceous, tender perennial that is mostly grown as a hardy biennial. Wallflower English seeds can be started outdoors in spring or fall, and Erysimum Cheiri has dense clusters of fragrant, 1/2 inch velvety, richly colored flowers in shades of yellow, orange, brown, and rusty red. The blooming English Wallflower attracts bees and butterflies, and frequent dead-heading may extend the 4-8 week bloom period even further.
Wallflower English is good for any English garden or rock garden, and its very fragrant and showy flowers are also especially nice in containers and as a ground cover for spring blooming bulbs. Erysimum Cheiri seeds produce a plant that usually blooms the second year after sowing, but starting the seeds indoors will give the best chance for flowering the first season. English Wallflower does well in coastal and mountainous regions where it thrives in cool summers.
