Erysimum kotschyanum

Alpine Wallflower

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.206.100

This is an easy-to-grow Wallflower that is more reliable than many of the less hardy forms. Plants form a low, tufted mound of bright green foliage, smothered in the spring by bright golden-yellow flowers with an incredible sweet and spicy fragrance. An excellent rock garden or edging plant for sunny areas, and tolerant of hot, dry sites with poor soil. Also great spilling out of cracks in rock walls, or between flagging stones. Combines beautifully with Veronica 'Georgia Blue'.
