Derivation of the botanical name:
Erysimum, Greek eryomai, "to help or save," because some of the species supposedly had a medicinal value
cheiranthoides, resembling genus Cheiranthus, a genus of wallflowers.
Erysimum cheiranthoides is cross-pollinated primarily by small bees and flies. Several beetles in the Chrysomelidae (Leaf Beetles) feed on Erysimum cheiranthoides.
- The standard author abbreviation L. is used to indicate Carl Linnaeus (1707 – 1778), a Swedish botanist, physician, and zoologist, the father of modern taxonomy.
