    Hello, I have an Erysimum (wallflower) 'Apricot Twist' that's in a pot. It seems to have died off slightly through the winter. I moved it under the eve of my house this fall, but it has turned brown around the outer edges. In the center of the plant it is still alive. If anyone knows when and how much to cut off of the plant, I would appreciate it. Thank you!:)

    Cut back dead parts any time. Cut spent flower stalks to the ground.

    I find erysimum quite short lived - mine only last about 3 years in the garden but then again they bloom their socks off for months at a time. They are very easy to propagate though by taking cuttings.
