What is this plant

Elaine59Elaine59 Posts: 6

I have 3 plants in my garden that are driving me mad, the reason being is I don't know what they are. They are very woody and have a spread of about 90cm, the leaves are thin and about 6cm covering most of the stalks and they have a dark pink/purple spikes made up of small flowers. I know it is not a Buddlia, but it driving me mad not knowing what it is, my other half had thrown out the labels when we planted them. Please can any one help.

     These look good with the orange and lemon wallflower type plants . I say wallflower type as I have them in my garden but I dint think they are wall flowers . maybe the same plant (erisimum )  in differant colours . I will check it up as Ive never known what they are - but they do come each year and are beautifuly eye catching.

    They are perennial wall flowers, only live a few years so best to take cuttings, Erysimum, Bowles Mauve, as Nutcutlet says. The other wallflowers used for bedding are biennuals, cheiranthus cheiri, but it's all the same family, brassicas.
