Notes on Erysimum 'Bowles's Mauve'

"This sun-loving trouper deserves a long service medal - the mauve flower spikes comes out with the tulips (or earlier) and are still going strong in September"

Flowers almost all year, bees love it

5

Plant in an insect-friendly corner and it flowers almost non-stop. It does get straggly after a few years, but is fairly easy to propogate replacements if you plan ahead

Bought three of these, lots of flowers and good sturdy plants. Flower all through spring/summer and look good in the winter too.

Repeat flowering if trimmed after each flowering

Looks great in pots as well in borders. Flowers are enjoyed by wildlife who queue in summer to visit. Most attractive colouring with delicate leaves.

Great service

Plant in excellent condition, well packaged. The plants have thrived and outgrown the same variety from an alternative source - I have used Crocus several times for a variety of plants and have always found them excellent.

This plant does really well in my garden on clay soil in full sun. I have a few of them and they fill the border wonderfully and look great.

Thisplant is one of my true favourites

I am not a big wallflower fan, but this one is special, with its jewel-bright colour and bushy growth. My garden colous schme is purlpes. pinks and boues with white, so it fits in perfectly. The only disadvantage is that it isn't a long-lived plant, which means that I but new ones every 5 or 6 years - but that means they always look fresh and healthy.
