Verbascum flowers


Verbascum flowers (Verbascum bombyciferum (Mullein))

I absolutely love the colours in this verbascum, and it's doing really well here so far, so I'm very pleased, as I didn't have any success with these in my old garden.

This is lovely, I cannot grow them here either, tried several times but given up now.

I succumb to the huge stand of these in Dobbies last week - it's already on it's arse here!! Knew I should have kept it in a pot!

I grow them in a pot. I have the giant ones too in a pot. Love the colour Karen.

I am amazed how well they are doing, but the real test will be next year....will the wet in winter kill them off?...time will tell!

How lovely is that, we do not do well with them at all, only Chaixii.

I tried these as they are so pretty but they disappeared. Obviously don't like my garden but the hairy giant ones do really well !!!

Being a Verbascum it should set plenty of seed, so one way or the other you have it covered for next year!

Well, you say that meanie, but hardly anything seeds itself around up here...except Alchemilla of course...and weeds!
