“Wallflower Isn’t Shy”

Western Wallflower isn’t shy, it just likes to grow along European masonry and North American sandy, rocky foothills. Also known as the ‘prairie rocket,’ it blooms in late May to late June on the northern plains and reaches 8 to 21 inches tall. It’s characterized by tall, thin, straight stems from a basal rosette and dense clusters of variable-colored yellow to orange flowers. It is also a pollinator generalist–pollinated by a variety of organisms.

Its scientific name, ‘erysimum capitatum,’ means “to help or save” [erysiumum], referring to its medicinal qualities, and “head-like” [capitatum], referring to its shape of floral clustering. Historically used as a poultice for bronchial congestion, and chewed or made into a tea for bowel issues.

Framed Size: 37x37x2(inches)

We offer hand made custom frames constructed from natural wood of your choice. Click on the photos below to open and preview the frame options.

All orders will be shipped in 3-10 business days via USPS Priority mail, UPS or FedEx, depending on the size of the item and whether framing was desired. For medium to larger works, and if crating is needed to safely ship, it will be UPS or FedEX. USPS can ship larger works but it is a lot more expensive!

If I anticipate framing will take longer for any reason, I will reach out and let you know! You will receive a tracking number via email once the work has shipped.

If you are in the Fargo-Moorhead area and wish to pick it up, please select STUDIOPICKUP at checkout. I will have a table in the front lobby with your piece labeled for pick-up between the hours of 8 AM and 5 PM. I will always try to say hello if I am in the studio!
