Erysimum Winter Orchid this is really doing what it should this winter (Erysimum Winter Orchid)

This perennial wallflower provides lovely colour from winter as it bounces into action by producing many fragrant flowers. Each bloom opens a coppery orange and turns purple as they age.
Flowering until early summer they are great as cut flowers. Prefers well-drained soil in sun or part shade.
