Bowles Mauve Wallflower


By Siris

Bowles Mauve Wallflower (Erysimum linifolium)

Flowering today, for the first time. Bought end last year in G centre, reduced to clear sale 50p in a sorry state, hence not previously put in my virtual garden. Clipped back, last year now 4 stems all with flower heads at top.

Peter did the same as you, no sign of a flower though!

The little black 'knobs' at the end of the stalk are more unopened flowers, so plenty more to come, am pleased with it but I need to put it further back as at 75 cm it is too far forward.

Yes they do grow very large here do they not?

I actually moved it today, dug a spade's square of soil and shifted it to a vacated square.

Nice colour with a lovely leaf.

Just move it, as where placed at 75 cm will get too big. Dug a spade's square moved into another more appropriate place.

Hbird, it is looking good even after its move. Have you tried seed, if you still have the plant? I will cut mine back after flowering but not in to the very old wood.
