Erysimum linifolium 'Little Kiss Lilac' / Wallflower / Chieranthus / Seeds

A showy and unusual form of Wallflower with lilac coloured flowers in early summer, from May to June.  Plants grow to about 30cm in height and are good for borders, containers and gravel gardens.  These Wallflowers are more compact than traditional Wallflowers and flower later, in early summer.


These plants grow best in full sun and neutral to alkaline well drained soil.  These are short-lived perennials and if you leave some seed on the plant after flowering they will re-seed naturally in your garden.

 

Pack of approx 100 seeds. Sow indoors in winter or early spring for same season flowers in late summer.  Or sow in summer/autumn for next year flowers, either indoors or directly in the ground.  Sowing instructions are and a colour photo are printed on the packet.
