Cheiranthus cheiri--English Wallflower

English wallflower grows best in full sun or light shade and in a well drained soil. The flowers are yellow, red, orange, or purplish. The plant is often treated as an annual or biennial. Most varieties are 12 to 30 inches tall and usually have fragrant flowers. Some winter protection is needed in colder climates.

Sow seed outside, one fourth inch deep, in June or July. Seed can be sown outdoors up to 2 months before first frost. Seed germinates within a week when grown indoors at temperatures between 55 and 65 degrees. Seedlings are spaced 9 inches apart in the garden. Cuttings may be taken after the plants have bloomed.
