The " flame tree " is a most conspicuous feature of an Illawarra landscape, the largest racemes of crimson red suggesting the name.
The flowers are arranged in racemes without bracts; during the life of the flower its stalk continues to grow so that the open flowers of an inflorescence stand on a level (that is, are corymbose).
They are handsome plants, the tall stem being crowned by racemes of showy flowers.
Erysimum Peroffskianum: hardy, 2 ft., deep orange; in erect racemes.
Handsome border plants, the tall stems crowned by racemes of showy hooded flowers.
