Comments: The wallflower produces a mound of yellow flowers in late winter and early spring. It can take the same winter temperatures that pansies can tolerate. It should be more widely used as a winter bedding plant because of the clusters of bright yellow flowers. Bed preparation is important -- provide a moist, fertile, well drained soil and full sunlight. Plant in the fall and expect blooming all through the winter until about late April in the Lower South. There is also a orange flowering selection in this series.
