Erysimum flowers

Erysimum flowersThe Erysimum are flowers of little merit. The herbaceous kinds thrive in common soil, but do best in a mixture of loam and peat. They may be increased by cuttings placed under glass.

The annuals and biennials merely need sowing in the open during autumn. They bloom in June and July. Their height is about 1.5 to 2 feet.
