Siberian Wallflower:

“Historical Notes: The ancient garden wallflower has been in cultivation for so long that its origin is uncertain. While serving as president, Thomas Jefferson sent his daughter Martha a “bundle of Wallflowers,”and he ordered wallflower seed from Philadelphia nurseryman Bernard McMahon in 1807.

Wallflowers are divided into two genera, Cheiranthus and Erysimum, and there is much debate as to the differences between the two. The name Cheiranthus derives from the Latin for “hand flower,” referring to this fragrant flower’s use in nosegays and tussie mussies. Wallflowers attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.”
