Erysimum ‘Bowles Mauve’
This genus swallowed up Cheiranthus, which included the old-fashioned biennial bedding-plant wallflowers and several choice perennials. All have the typical clustered four-petaled flowers that give the crucifers their name, but their habits and uses differ widely.
This is the most popular of the Erysimum hybrids, growing to 3 ft. tall and 4–6 ft. wide, with narrow gray-green leaves held on erect stems, each topped by a 1 1/2 -ft.-long, narrow, spikelike cluster of mauve flowers. Best in areas with cool summers and mild winters, where bloom is practically continual; elsewhere plants bloom from winter through spring. Often short-lived.
