The most stunning wallflower is a variety known as Erysimum
linifolium 'Bowles Mauve.
Botanically, they are now Erysimum
, a term of obscure origin, but their former name, Cheiranthus, translated from Greek as hand-flower, is thought to refer to their popularity - long before the 20th century - as posies carried in the hand where their sweet scent could be appreciated.
Annuals and perennials: Bacopa, catmint, Erysimum
'Bowles Mauve', true geraniums (Geranium species), hellebores, Iceland poppy, lobelia, narcissus, Shasta daisy, sweet William.
In Prince Harry's Sentebale garden, designed by Matt Keightley, Erysimum

'Bowles Mauve' which flowers from early spring through autumn.
(perennial wallflowers) begin to flower in late spring and carry on for weeks.

Our common wallflower, Erysimum
cheirii, has, on a balmy spring evening, got one of the most powerful scents of any garden plant and the stocks, Matthiola species, grown as bedding plants, cut flowers or as a hardy annual, can fill a garden or a living room with scents no air freshener could rival.
Below them, Erysimum
'Bowles Mauve', purple Verbena Tapien hybrid, and white 'Iceberg' and 'Flower Carpet' roses pump out flowers over a long season.
One of the most prolific bloomers is a wallflower known as Erysimum
Some of the best forms of the most commonly seen wallflower, Erysimum
cheiri, are in the Bedder series, such as Orange Bedder and Blood Red; the Fair Lady series of pastel shades including a pink; Fire King, orange-red; Harlequin in dazzling mixed hues; and Harpur Crewe, rich yellow.
