More Details

Verbascum 'Flush of White' is a light, airy, vertical growing plant, invaluable for adding punctuation marks to a border. Good cut flower and pollinator plant too.

Verbascums give you the spires and candelabras of a garden – the tall, vertical, and often branched scale, which brings air into any plant combination. They are the third dimension, the upper storey to prevent any border becoming too heavy, too dull. I absolutely love them.

Sowing, Seeds, Planting The more fertile the soil the taller they will get, but the plant is very adaptable and will put up with very poor soil and continue to self seed if conditions are desirable.
Care Tips To encourage repeat blooming or extend the season to late in the year, cut off the central flower spike after initial flowering to where you can see side shoots emerging, this will encourage multiple flower spikes to form. Mulch overwinter for protection on cool days. Feed moderately - too much fertiliser will delay flowering.
Flowering May - July
Vase Life Strip the bottom leaves.
