Verbascum chaixii 'Wedding Candles'

Mullein

This is a scintillating Verbascum for dry, gravel and scree gardens. 

The gorgeous, multi-branched flower stems just drip with pure white flowers that have fuzzy purple filaments and bright orange anthers. The perky blooms radiate above pearly green textured leaves over a long flowering period, attracting butterflies and bees to a rich source of food. 

Very happy in a low water environment and well drained soil. 

A vigorous self sower but that shouldn't be a problem - once you've got one, you'll want loads.
