Description

A brilliant short-lived perennial wallflower. It's long-flowering and scented. Flowers emerge as a coppery orange, turning to purple as they age. Hugely recommended.

These perennial wallflowers are renowned for flowering long and hard from spring right through the summer, often the first things to come into full bloom with the hellebores and daphnes. I like picking these for spring bunches too.

Care Tips

Thrives best in full sun on well drained, nutrient poor soil that is neutral to alkaline. Perfect for growig in spring containers. Trim lightly after flowering to prevent plants becoming leggy.
