Calling all Erysimum 'Bowles Mauve' growers: I've just bought this for the first time
London, United Kingdom
Erysimum 'Bowles Mauve' growers:
I've just bought this for the first time, never grown it before - and therefore only just noticed an anomaly. My RHS encyclopaedia says this plant is half hardy. My Reader's Digest encyclopaedia says this plant is hardy down to -15 deg. C. Now, I may be getting old, but I've checked, and I haven't made a mistake, that's what they say. So anyone who's grown it, what's your experience? I know its shortlived, but is it hardy - which one's right?
