Erysimum WALBERTON’S® Fragrant Star

Erysimum hybrida = ‘Walfrastar’

Erysimum WALBERTON’S® Fragrant Star ‘Walfrastar’ is boldly variegated, with bright lemon-yellow flowers. It’s more compact than the familiar ‘Fragrant Sunshine’, and it blooms from April to at least July, and may well continue into autumn if you give it lean soil and good drainage. The chocolate/purple buds contrast well with the pale foliage, and the bright flowers will cheer up the garden. Flowers are sterile producing a long bloom season.
