CROCHET PATTERNS (Flower Crochet Pattern #95 English Wallflower) – 365 Crochet Flowers Bouquet Project

 

Crochet English Wallflower

Wallflower (Erysimum) is a small perrenial shrub with erect stems. The species I’ve chosen, called English wallflower (Erysimum cheiri) is native to Europe and it is cultivated as an ornamental plant for its fragrant and brightly coloured blooms.

The flowers grow in clusters at the top of the stems. Each individual flower has purplish sepals and round petals in shades of orange, red or purple.
