The twist? The bright, apricot and orange blooms open from purple buds, the complimentary colour combination is a sensation.
Wallflowers are stand out perennials that don’t need a lot of fuss. The blooms have a delightful, spicy fragrance and they last for months. Their tidy, upright habit is an asset in gardens or pots.
Wallflowers are fantastic companions to spring flowering bulbs. They especially make playful partners for tulips. They also look good in rockeries, as part of a border or in groups in garden beds.
Plant in moderately fertile to humus rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot. Water to establish, then only if rainfall is low.
If you cut the flower stems back after they have finished blooming, it will help to keep the plant bushy and encourage even more flowers. Then, once flowering has finished you can prune hard in winter, and then add some fertiliser to encourage and maintain healthy growth.
