New Multicolored Wallflower

by Charlie Nardozzi

Wallflowers are tender perennials that can also be grown as biennials in cold climates. This quintessential English flower features strap-like leaves and tender stems of brightly colored blossoms. Now a new variety from Wales adds more color to this popular early-summer bloomer.

?Jenny Brook? wallflower (Erysium ?Jenny Brook?) produces multicolored flowers for months on 20-inch-tall, mounded plants. The purple flower buds erupt into a unique combination of mauve, apricot, and coral pink blossoms. ?Jenny Brook? is a perennial in USDA hardiness zones 7 to 9. It makes an excellent container plant as well as a bedding plant in the front of a flower border. It grows best in full sun on well-drained, moderately fertile to poor soils.
