Grown from seed from NARGS seed exchange labelled as Linum ultissisima. But it is obviously not. Similar leaves grow in a tufted rosette at ground level until it decides to flower and send up a stalk. Unbranched inflorescence lengthens as more flowers are produced for 8 to 10 inches. Seed pods are 1/4 to 1/2 inch oval "eggs" containing many seeds.

I think it is a kind of wallflower. Look under cheiranthus, the botanical name for wallflower and see if it seems like that to you. Sharon in Okla.

Yep...looks like Wallflower. Erysium 'Bredon' has longer racemes than others.

It looks like a wallflower to me to. It's got the four petal mustard flower. I believe that wallflowers latin name is Erysimum though. That's as close as i can get it. There are a lot of different wallflowers and I only grow two of the larger varieties so far.

RE: I'm convinced - maybe

Gosh, the flowers on all the images I pulled up are right on. But everything I could pull up with seed pods had pods that were long and thin. Mine are egg shaped, almost round. I still think Erysium is the best bet, and I'll keep on the look out for the right species. Thanks everyone.
