I would like to obtain a hardy wallflower in a soft yellow.
Ordered a Scented Gold which is Erysimum perovskianum,
but it is recommended as an annual?
I would want to be able to buy seeds for them.
Anyone know anything about Afghan wallflowers, and /or Erysimum Alpina?
The names on wallflowers confuse me, as I think there are several names for the same plants?

Hi Caroline! Have you looked at Wrightman Alpines on-line catalogue? I bought a dwarf, hybrid wallflower from Wrightman Alpines in 2004, planted it in my gravel garden, and it lived and flowered for 6 years. It was Erysimum 'Turkish Delight'. I just checked Harvey Wrightman's current plant list, and he isn't offering 'Turkish Delight' any more, but he does list two alpine Erysimum species with yellow flowers.

I think the one that I need is called Swiss wallflower.
Anyone know who carries seeds?
