Wall Flowers

Do wallflowers grow back in the spring from the original plant (do you cut it back or do they just reseed themselves)?

The Wallflower is an old-fashioned garden flower which, although a perennial is usually grown as an annual or biennial because it tends to 'bloom itself to death'.
This 12"-24" plant produces a profusion of fragrant, brightly colored flowers all spring making it an excellent choice for your butterfly garden, flower bed, or garden border.

Now they are finished. Can I leave them in, though they look untidy, or can I cut them back? If I do this, will they return next year?

Deadhead the flowers after flowering. The foliage can be attractive after the flowers have bloomed.
Wallflower can be grown as a perennial in warmer climates.

Wallflowers

Do wallflowers bear flowers from 1st season? I had sown seeds in mid October and transplanted in mid November in 8″ container trays. They are almost 1 ft tall and very healthy but not yet bloomed. It is end of January now. When should I expect them to bloom? I live in western part of India and temp right now is high of 30 and low of 15*C.

Thank you,
Tanvi

Wallflowers have a two-year cycle, when grown from seed, and will grow only leaves the first year and then bear flowers the 2nd year.

Starting a Wallflower From a Cutting

Does anyone have details on this? Where do I cut the cutting on the plant? Do you just put it in the soil or do you have to place in water to start the roots growing on the cutting before planting? Is spring the right time to do this?

They root best as small side shoots. Pull from the plant with a small 'heel' attached.
Trim up the 'heel' so there are no strips of bark attached and remove the lower leaves.
Insert 1/3 of the cutting in a pot mixture of compost and perlite and keep moist in a well lit and well ventilated unheated location.
They can be planted out the following spring.
Take plenty of cuttings as the success rate can be low.
