Plant of the Week: Erysimum”Bowles Mauve”

An old favourite and rightly so, this plant flowers for months at a time .It makes a low shrubby mound about 16″ to 24″ tall with lovely deep mauve flowers. Keep dead-heading to increase flower production and I always take a few cuttings in summer as “Bowles Mauve” is a short lived perennial,  say 3 or 4 years as the constant flowering seems to wear it out!
