Description

This is a delicious smoky purple long-flowering variety. Verbascums give you the candelabras of a garden – the tall, vertical, yet 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.

Care Tips

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. Dead head regularly to prolong flowering.
