Perennials, Flowers

ERYSIMUM

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.

Erysimum insulare suffrutescens

Native to central and Southern California coasts. Woody-based growth to 6–24 in. high, 4–12 in. wide, with narrow leaves and fragrant orange-yellow flowers in spring. Requires little water.
