Erysimum 'Apricot Twist' (Wallflower)


Also known as Apricot Delight, this special perennial offers brilliant blooms of orange and apricot in spring and summer. Its flowers emerge from striking deep purple buds that sit atop attractive vibrant green foliage with excellent character. Removing spent blooms can help stimulate and extend blooming. 

Butterflies and hummingbirds love this plant, it is deer resistant, and it is evergreen in mild winter areas. Apricot Twist is easy to grow and a great option for beds, borders, container growing, rock gardens, cut arrangements, and masse planting. It is a vigorous plant, and trimming after blooming is done for the season can help keep a fuller growth habit. They generally grow up to 2' tall x 2' wide, and we recommend spacing at least 12" apart. 

Once established, Apricot Twist is drought tolerant. You will want to plant these beauties in well-draining soil. They prefer full sun but can handle some shade, and are cold hardy to -10°F when protected from windchill.
