Hey all,

Anyone know what this flower is? The seeds came in a flower mix but I lost the package It's evergreen and as you can see it's already blooming. Doesn't get any taller than 6 inches. The flowers smell really nice and it tends to spread and form a groundcover. Thanks!

This is Erysimum cheiri, the online translator tells me it is wallflower in English.
They are very pretty spring flowers and come in different colours. Some are more fragrant than others. Family is brassicae, but this plant is slightly poisonous.

I love them and have ordered seeds recently. My garden is a bit difficult for them, I have to pamper them quite a bit.
You are lucky, enjoy!

Thank you! I really appreciate the ID--it seems to really like my hugelkultur hedgerows. I think I will try to find some seeds this fall and see if I can get it established on more parts of my hedgerows. I have some parts that could really use a nice low maintenance groundcover and this plant would be a great fit.
