Details

 

Erysimum 'Canaries Yellow' This is a compact, biennial Wallflower selection that forms a bushy mound of dark green leaves the first season, then early in the second spring it bursts into bloom with clusters of fragrant golden-yellow flowers. Perfect for the sunny rock garden, or in the sunny border. Allow some plants to form seeds, which should self sow. Grows best in mild winter regions. Plants are naturally compact and mounding, but pruning back by half after flowering is wise to prevent them from getting leggy. Wonderful for mixed borders, all containers and rock gardens.
