Cured at 65??? What flower is that?

G'day Gina and Jalal,

Gina my crip mates and I often laugh about the cured at 65 (Woo Hoo bring it on) and then just go on the Aged pension thing!! DSP recipients have a CHOICE at aged pension age to change to Aged pension or stay on the DSP. DO NOT change as there are benefits at present on DSP that you will not be eligible for if you change to Aged. Always question and challenge cos they won't tell you.

Jalal they are Wallflowers, used to be common, an old fashioned plant and they smell nice too. They go best in full sun which mine aren't. Mine are leggy and falling over. In sun they are compact upright and chokka with flowers.
Erysimum linifolium 'Bowles Mauve' is a great perennial that will flower in late spring. Flowers are 4 petaled in spikes and bright mauve-pink to lilac in color. The foliage has linear leaves and a gray-green color. Wallflowers should be spaced 18" apart and will grow 24" tall with a 35" spread. These plants are great in rock gardens, along walls and in perennial beds.
Plant Use:
Flowering Perennial
Exposure: Sun to Partial Sun
Water Requirements: Medium

I think they come in other colours too. Go get some. Not expensive.

  1. Glee Thank you so much for clearing that up. I will pass it on the the fellow who mentioned it. I love it when I don't have to add another battle to my "to do list" of stupid govt rules requiring changes (it is getting pretty long as you can imagine.
