    It is a Wallflower.

    Usually biennial or short lived perennial.

    Do best in full sun. No special care required.

    How can you lie there and think of England
    When you don't even know who's in the team

    S.Yorkshire/Derbyshire border
  • Great thanks! I’d better move it. maybe it just looks better now after being scorched last summer. Thanks again

    You could cut last year’s seed pods off, dry them out and sow in April, lots of new plants for the following year.

    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor.

    Oh, welcome back Puncdoc, I sprinkled some wallflower seeds in a little patch down by my veg plot (they were free, I dont like them) they flowered for the next 3 years, the patch is clay, very wet, often underwater, full of brambles and bindweed from next doors "garden"!  They have now been dug out!
