This engaging hardy perennial bears beautiful violet, pink and white blossoms that stand on the edges of a strong grey-green stem that reaches a height of 90cm. Extra tough and drought tolerant, these are a shorter variety of Verbascum which are perfect for people that have a smaller garden or less space. Plant in sunny patio containers or garden borders to add a splash of colour and attract butterflies and bees into your summer garden. They can also be used as cut-flower displays to bring these cheerful flowers indoors. Flowers from May through to August.
