Buy wallflower 'Fire King' wallflower - Erysimum: The perfect partner for tulips

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: poor to moderately fertile, well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: March to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Please note: These are sold as bare-root plants, which have recently been dug up from the ground. Therefore, they will look a bit wilted and sad when they arrive, however field grown plants are usually stronger, and they will soon pick up when they are either planted out in the border or patio pot.

    These dazzling orange-red wallflowers will put on a stunning display in early spring. Their sumptuous colouring looks dazzling when teamed with rich plums and purples, or can add sizzle to yellow, orange and red schemes. Often grown as a biennial plant, wallflowers perform best in full sun where their bright, fragrant flowers will shine. They look particularly effective in a large patio container or at the front of a sunny fertile, well-drained border.

  • Garden care: Provide cloche protection where frosts are very severe or prolonged.

    Please note that these wallflowers should be planted out as soon as they arrive!

Notes on wallflower 'Fire King'

"Don’t’ forget to plant biennials wall flowers, these make wonderful container plants. They can be planted alone, or mingle among tulips. Biennial wallflowers have a heavenly scent denied to the perennial ones. A spring day is lifted by their iconic scent."

Good plants delivered on time.

Wonderful in my front garden adding vivid colour with orange, yellow and magenta tulips and forget me nots. They are bare root plants, and some were very small and weak, but most survived to flower in spring.

So sad. This wallflower just didn't thrive in an exposed area. Wind,,rain . Definitely more suited to some shelter. Such a shame

Hi I bought some of these. I was not able to plant them until about 6 days after delivery, by which time they looked pretty sad with a lot of the leaves rotted away. How likely is it that they will revive?

Josephine

It's hard to say without seeing them, but if there is still some top growth, then I would advise getting them in the ground as soon as possible. They may look wilted and sad throughout the winter, but could still go on to flower profusely if the damage is not too severe.

Helen

Please advise planting space between bare root plants.

The Gind

Hello there I would plant approx 25-30cm apart.
