Erysimum Bowles Purple Butterfly gardening

One of the longest flowering seasons. In some years, this plant has flowered in every month of the year. It is an excellent nectar source for early and late season butterflies like this Red Admiral above. It is especially favoured by the Whites, although they don't use it as a caterpillar plant.
