Buy Erysimum 'Bowles's Mauve' wallflower: Stunning mauve flowers

This perennial is semi-evergreen so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.


  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: poor to moderately-fertile, well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: February to July
  • Hardiness: borderline hardy (may need winter protection)

    This long-flowering, bushy, vigorous wallflower produces long spires of deep mauve flowers from late winter to summer above narrow, grey-green leaves. It is a short-lived plant, but makes a vivid display for months in a sunny border. Try it as part of a colour-themed scheme, or contrast it with vivid yellows. It also looks good in a rock garden or raised bed.

  • Garden care: Provide cloche protection where frosts are very severe or prolonged.

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"

A good 'doer'

One of my favourites for the mixed border. It flowers from spring through to the first frosts. It keeps most of its bulk during the winter so no bare patch with die back and lasts a few years before getting too leggy and needing replacing.

I planted these in a front border interspersed with mini daffodils. So far very successful.The plants have bushed out and after the first flowering and a trim, they are now flowering again. They give a nice splash of late summer colour.

Yes. Bowles Mauve is a great plant. Flowers and flowers all summer and still going. Needs cutting back to renew. It struggled a bit in the heat this year.
