      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Verbascums are very impressive plants for well drained soil in sun. They form semi evergreen rosettes of white wooly leaves which give winter colour in the garden. During the summer they produce tall spikes of saucer shaped flowers in white, pink or brownish red but mostly yellow which are short lived but abundant. The tall ones such as olympicum can reach 2 metres but there are smaller ones such as Gainsborough which reaches 1.2 metres. My personal favourite is a fairly new cultivar called Helen Johnson. During early to late summer it produces the most beautiful light pinkish brown flowers and grows to 90cm. Verbascums are hardy although they can be short lived and they are propagated by seed, division or by root or semi ripe cuttings according to the variety. They are a very impressive plant for the back of the border although there are smaller varieties too.
