Notes:

4-petals, tough-stemmed, about 15″ high. Solitary specimen in a cacophony of weeds. The flower looks a lot like some pictures of Ludwigia, but couldn’t find anything that matched color, leaf and cluster flower arrangement of the specimen.

    Wallflower scent varies and doesn’t necessarily linger. Mine were gloriously scented earlier in the Spring but not so noticeable now.

    Except . . . I can detect no fragrance from the flower, as described on the berry nurseries site. Also, seeing Erysimum is in the mustard family, I chewed a blossom, as every flower I can recall tasting in that family has had a hint of a mustard/radish/etc.-like taste. This one did not. The picture appears dead-on – although the leaves on my specimen appear less mature than the one on the site.

    Parityanimal, the picture you sent precisely nails it. My apologies to you and Stone for the inadequate and fuzzy pictures taken with my laptop webcam, and thanks to you both. I’m saving the websites you both sent, in case I see either plant in the future.

    It might be lithospermum canescens… Hoary puccoon. I’m seeing blooms at my house. https://www.lakeforest.edu/academics/programs/environmental/courses/es203/lithospermum_canescens.php

    Looks a lot like a wallflower, but not enough of the plant to tell for sure.
