Shrubby wallflower is a long-flowering perennial, or to be precise a subshrub forming woody stems, exactly like lavender plants do. Fragrant Sunshine is a selection made by David Ralph Tristram in 1994 in West Sussex, UK, patented under PP13,432.

Fragrant Sunshine is a lovely Shrubby wallflower with rich yellow flowers atop 30-50 cm tall stems that keep making new buds from May until July. They are sweetly fragrant and smell like violets. Blooming can be encouraged by a selective fertilizer a few times during the season. Evergreen leaves are narrowly lanceolate, blue-green and create a fantastic colour combination with the pastel-coloured flowers. This plant will look great in dark mulch as well as very light sand or gravel.

Wallflower needs full sun and very well-drained soil or a raised bed as it dislikes wet places. The soil should be poor and preferably alkaline or neutral. Growers recommend pruning it to about half its size after flowering to keep the shrub neat and bushy. If cultivated in free draining soil and protected with fir branches in winter it is hardy to about -23°C (USDA zone 6), without protection it does best in zones 7 and 8.
