The Common Wallflower belongs to the oldest decorative plants we know in Central Europe. This bright flower originates from South Europe and can especially be found wildly in the Mediterranean region. As it often settles in the cracks of walls, it
bears the name wallflower in many languages. The blossoms don't appear before the second year from April and bloom and scent in the garden until July. The pleasant, light scent is slightly reminiscent of violets. The wildflower has bright yellow blossoms that are arranged in clusters and appear very numerous. The shrub, therefore, is a true eyecatcher in the spring bed and shines nearly as bright as the sun.

In the Middle Ages, the Common Wallflower was planted in the castle gardens of knights and noblemen. It was highly popular at that time. It's also used as a medicinal plant for strengthening the heart and circulation. However, the whole plant is poisonous and, thereby, no relevant medicine these days.

The Common Wallflower has been slightly buried in oblivion in the past but it has absolutely deserved a place in the garden as the brightness of the blossoms is unsurpassed and very beautiful next to tulips, forget-me-not, and pansy. The blossoms are well suitable as a cut flower and last a long time in the vase. Today, there are many different breeds of the Common Wallflower in further great colours.

Erysimum cheiri seeds, content: Approx. 300 Common Wallflower seeds.

Perennial, however, often rather biennial shrub that blooms beautifully in spring. Preculture indoors from mid-March or direct sowing outdoors from mid-May to July possible. Only slightly cover the seeds with soil. Germination period approx. 14 days. The seedlings should only move outdoors after the last night frosts. The Common Wallflower prefers very warm, unprotected, and sunny locations. It doesn't bloom before the second year and isn't quite as hardy. Therefore, you should protect it with brushwood or fleece in winter.

The Common Wallflower belongs to the brassica plants and is, therefore, equally prone to the typical pests.
