Pretty one Spritz.......all my Verbascums are doing well now, very late this year though, like many plants.

I really like Verbascums, are they difficult to grow? This one's a particularly pretty shade.

I bought this from the first ever Gardeners World live at NEC...it grew massive and was an outstanding site all through the next summer...fantastic and such a wonderful shape and colour:-)

Most of my Verbascums return the following year, but they don't seem to be long-lived plants. :-(

I'm pleased to hear that, Ba. I'd have liked it to be taller for its position!

I think any plant that flowers like Gainsborough did for me has to be short lived:-(

What a shame, Ba. I'll see how mine gets on.
