I always thought "wall flower" referred to a very shy, introverted person never realizing it is a real plant.

I was definitely a wall flower in high school. Far from it in my latter years.

Thanks for another interesting lesson,

It really is a real plant, Christi, a very pretty one and its scent is wonderful. You need to try it. I had it until 2 years ago, and somehow lost it through the winter. I haven't replaced it yet, but I will. That and Jacob's Ladder are high on my list.

Thanks for writing, always great to hear from you.

I bought a wallflower plant and kept waiting for it to bloom! The other perennials with the order eventually bloomed, but not the wallflower. I re-checked the vendor's site; yes, it was a perennial. Only by reading your article did I realize I may have bought it after it bloomed! Oh well, there's always next year. Thanks, as always!

Just give it a little time, Carrie...bet it blooms for you next year. I hope so because you will love that scent. Pretty, too.

Thank you, as always.
