ERYSIMUM 'Bowles's Mauve'

Reasonable soil
RHS Award of Garden Merit
Pot Size


Height x Spread: 60cm x 60cm

Erysimum 'Bowles Mauve' is much loved by many gardeners for its vivid display of purple flowers that appear from late winter through to midsummer, on upright stems with narrow evergreen foliage.

Fantastic for adding cheer to a winter garden, they combine brilliantly with dark purple, yellow or orange flowering spring bulbs, plus lime green Euphorbia.  A great choice for a coastal site or gravel garden, it needs a sunny spot with fairly fertile, free draining alkaline soil to thrive, but can also tolerate a neutral pH soil.  Some protection may be needed in severe winters.
