Wallflower (Erysimum Cheiri Bedder mix) 150 seeds (#1635)

A very ornamental plant, it is liable to die out after flowering, probably because it exhausts itself by producing so many flowers.
Erysimum cheiri syn. Cheiranthus cheiri (common name "wallflower") is a species of flowering plant, native to Europe but widespread as an introduced species elsewhere. It is also widely cultivated as a garden plant. It is known as giroflée and ravenelle in French, Goldlack in German, alhelí in Spanish and violacciocca in Italian.
This is an herbaceous perennial, often grown as a biennial, with one or more highly branching stems reaching heights of 30 cm. The leaves are generally narrow and pointed and may be up to 20 cm long. The top of the stem is occupied by a club-shaped inflorescence of strongly scented flowers. Each flower has purplish-green sepals and rounded petals which are two to three centimeters long and in shades of bright yellows to reds and purples.
This is a popular ornamental plant, widely cultivated for its abundant, fragrant flowers in spring. It associates well in bedding schemes with other spring flowers such as tulips and forget-me-nots. It is usually grown as a biennial, sown one year to flower the next, and then discarded. This is partly because of its tendency to grow spindly and leggy during its second year, but more importantly its susceptibility to infections such as clubroot.
