Erysimum × hybrida Winter™ Orchid

Hybrid Wallflower

USDA Zone: 7-9

Plant number: 1.206.230

(='ER 06 4-2') This is a new series of Wallflower that was specifically created by crossing many different species to give better plants, with more colours and longer flowering. These hybrid varieties bloom non-stop for months. The Winter™ series provides the largest plants with the biggest flowers. This selection produces fragrant flower spikes that emerge red, maturing to deep, orchid-purple over gray-green foliage. 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. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
