New plant: Erysimum 'Jenny Brook'


Erysimum 'Jenny Brook' is a new variety available from summer 2010 in North America, Europe and Japan.

Here's what distributors Blooms of Bressingham have to say about it

The real Jenny Brook is as vigorous as her namesake Erysimum

Roger Handley of Wales named the startlingly beautiful Erysimum he found in his garden after his granddaughter Jenny Brook. Little did he know the pressure he’d be under to discover more unique introductions for the plant world – he has three other grandchildren, and their grandmother fully expects each to receive a special namesake variety in due time.

Jenny Brook, who graduated from Manchester University on July 7th, is both a competitive walker and a member of Manchester’s Women’s Rugby League team. Her proud grandparents say she is as active and vigorous as the Erysimum named after her.

Grandfather Roger discovered Erysimum ‘Jenny Brook’ growing as a seedling at the edge of a gravel path at his home in Wales. It flowered amazingly, and subsequent cuttings grew much more vigorously than the original plant. He brought his discovery to Blooms of Bressingham® where it was an instant hit – its striking, multi-colored flowers progress from purple to mauve to peach.

‘Jenny Brook’ was voted one of the top 12 perennials in the Trial Gardens at the University of Georgia in 2009. It won a Classic City Award, which is given to plants with the highest performance for the longest period of time in the challenging environment of Athens, Ga. In Allan Armitage’s words: "Erysimum 'Jenny Brook' wowed us from January until June with her delightful color palette of apricot and lavender. A plant worth getting to know, this Erysimum is the best wall flower we have ever trialed, bar none. Lots of flower power, no maintenance. It showed no sign of stress whatsoever, proving to withstand the climate associated with the southeastern piedmont." Lots of flower power, no maintenance. It showed no sign of stress whatsoever, proving to withstand the climate associated with the southeastern piedmont." (AHS Heat Zone 9; more than 120 to 150 days per year above 86oF / 30 oC)
