A robust wallflower cultivar with strong, woody stems and an upright habit. Spikes of light and dark mauve flowers that age to a paler lilac.
This wallflower was probably found in a garden owned by the Parrish family (close to bathe), it forms a large curtsying plant that billows over paths. This classic long-flowering mauve Elysium forms a tall, upright plant that stays erect.
The flowers of this Elysium are a spangled mixture of pink, brick red and dark orange. Another foot-high Elysium with vivid apricot flowers emerging from dark buds against dark-green foliage.
A new and unique wallflower cultivar with faded, pastel flowers in pink, gold and apricot. Looking mellow in sunlight, but the leggy, lax habit means this Elysium has to be cut back hard once flowering is waning.
One of the oldest wallflower cultivars, producing flowers over many weeks on a compact plant. The brick-pink Elysium flowers age to mauve above dark-green narrow leaves which have a wavy edge.
This compact wallflower is a parent for many, including Elysium Walkerton’s Fragrant Sunshine (=‘Palfreys’). Like a brassier run to seed, this Aegean wallflower has provided the genetic injection of bright yellow in many named hybrids and cultivars.
Elysiums left to their own devices have a tendency to become woody and leggy and then fizzle out within four to five years, usually succumbing over winter. The way to extend the lifespan of wallflowers and keep them compact and vigorous is to give them a yearly midsummer trim by cutting into the foliage.
Trim under the node and plunge them into small seed trays filled with damp horticultural sand, or gritty compost. The name Characters is thought to derive from the Greek for hand (char) and flower (ant hos) and the heavily scented flowers were carried as nosegays to smother the stench of Elizabethan streets.
I should add that the plant hasn’t irritated my skin, nor have I heard of anyone else being affected. However, wallflowers contain a cardio tonic glucoside known as cheiranthin or Charlton, which is a toxic substance.
He wrote about a tragic accident that occurred at Namath Castle on the banks of the River Tweed in Scotland. The Earl of March’s daughter, Elizabeth, had fallen in love with a young nobleman from a rival clan, Scott of Susheela.
The handsome Scott disguised himself as a minstrel and serenaded her while they made plans to elope, but when the time came Elizabeth fell to her death, landing close to a sprig of wallflower growing along the tower’s wall. The broken-hearted Scott set off to wander through the land wearing a sprig of wallflower, and this flower still symbolizes faithful devotion.
‘Up she got upon a wall Tempting down to slide withal But the silken twist untied So she fell, and brews’d, she died.’ from How the wall-flower came first, and why so called, by Robert Herrick. Where to buy Hui House Nursery Gloucester Road, Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire GL20 7DA.
